I bought 5 day-old Silverlace and 4 Golden Comets the week before Easter. I was told that the GC are early layers and will lay as early as 16 weeks. Well...the free-loaders are now nearly 6 months old and not one egg from any of them!!! They have been on layer feed since 18 weeks, and are great big beauties! There was one chick that they said was a GC who ended up being a NHR. She started laying 3 weeks ago. So, we have had one egg a day from that little sweetie, but I keep wondering what is up with her sisters!?!
