    I have a golden comet that has been setting on 15 eggs for over a week now. I hadn't moved her off the nest that she made in the hen house cause she's a first timer and i didn't want to discourage her. So when the other hens would get in there with her and lay a egg I moved it to another nest. I left them in the laying box so the other hens would lay there instead of getting in the the comet. Today I noticed one of my white rocks is in there on the other nest! I don't know much about the white rocks. My father in law said I have the first golden comet he's ever heard of setting and possibly the white rock too. Does anyone else have goldens that are setting and white rocks that are setting?

    I agree with your father in law that's the first golden comet I have ever heard of hatchin eggs. Is she definitely a GC? Is she a good layer?

    Yeah she's definitely a golden comet. She's a wonderful layer. I'd say she lays 4-6 eggs a week on average.
