My Rhode Island Red is my best layer since she first laid. Then my Production Red took another two weeks after the RIR to get going and that surprised me. Even my Silver Lace Wyandotte laid before the Production Red. Now that we are getting into winter with less light my RIR and SLW are still my best layers albeit less than we had in Sept. My Production Red is down to around 1-2 eggs a week. I'm not complaining, I didn't buy a Production Red on purpose I thought she was a RIR when I got her, I'm just surprised.
