How many days can they lay in a row?

    I thought that at first they would lay every couple of days. I have a white rock and an Isa that started laying the same day, about 23 days ago. I have gotten an egg from each of them every day but 1 (yes same day for that too!) in the last 23 days. [​IMG] Is this normal?

    I want that to happen to me! I have two that lay every other day and one that has layed 2 days in a row - weird brown and misshapen eggs.

    I got my sexlink pullets in june and they started laying soft shell eggs with 3 days of bringing them home and all 3 of them have laid one egg (Shells are normal now) every day since (some times not in the nest box) with exception of the day that one of them started laying dbbl yokers for 9 times straight she laid ever other day during that time.

    The dbbl yokers where HUGE and ridged I think the girl should have taken the week off to recover.

    I wished I had gotten 3 more girls but I'm getting more eggs than my family eats as it is.

    everyone locally here suggested I get a roo to protect the girls so I went to a friend who has nothing but EEs with banty mixed in 5 gens ago and he gave me a HUGE Roo immature looks like a PR with a big wide dimpled comb and huge thick legs and now developing giant spikes (Banty spikes but bigger)

    I hatched an EE from the happy 4some and it's all white with one little gray stripe across one wing still only 4 weeks old.

    I have had great luck with egg production. we will see what the EE does in a few more week.
