Hello everyone, my name is Sandy. My husband and I adopted 2 jersey giant hens and 2 polish crested hens on August 1st. We live in Southern California and have had a cold winter for the area. Our polish crested started laying eggs a month ago, we have not seen any eggs from our beautiful jerseys. Is this normal? I have read it takes 6 months for them mature. What has everyone experienced? The jerseys are also very vocal. Is there anything we can do to quiet them down a little bit, I don't think our neighbors appreciate the noise.
