I have Buckeyes and EE. EE started laying between 20 -24 wks. 1 Buckeye started laying yesterday
, she is 22 wks. I am expecting the other one to start laying anyday. Earlier is not usually better. The later they start to lay the bigger their eggs usually are.
My EE, MaryAnn lays an 1 3/4 oz egg about 4 days a week, she started laying at 20 wks. Her sister started laying at 24 wks and lays a 2 oz egg everyday (missed 2 days since mid January). My Buckeye's first egg yesterday was 2 ozs and in a month or so will be bigger. It's worth the wait.
