    Oh yes! They are bred to be production birds. One of the best layers you can get.

    We have 3 Golden Comet hens. They are such good girls! They lay lots of big brown eggs for us. The are very friendly and follow us around.
    You should be happy with them.​

    I love my golden comets, they are lovely sweet birds. They were the first to lay and have been very productive, consistent layers of large eggs.

    I also love my Golden Comets. I first bought three from a friend, then was lucky enough to find a man just about an hour from me who had GC pullets, 17 weeks old. Bought 15 more, they are wonderful, laying well, and lo and behold he had some more. So I bought 15 more, figuring they are 6 months younger than the others and may moult at a slightly different time, and my friend also got 6. They are just begining to lay, we eat well, the dogs eat very well, and we have eggs to sell. Now if the Khaki Campbell duck would start to lay it would be perfect.

    Yes they are good layers. They are red sexlink comersial bred brown egg layers. I have Isa Browms that are the same just a different name. Unbeleviable layers.

    I'm delighted with mine. Had them since less than 12 hours old

    getting an average of 11.5 eggs daily from 12 hens now. Friendly, healthy, I was lucky and next year I'll get 12 more. Our co-op has a reputation for providing excellent chicks.
