    So I have had a couple of Pekin girls for about a month now. I was told that they were hatched in the fall and were probably laying. But I haven't gotten an egg from them yet! If they hatched in October they'd be nearly 7 months old [​IMG] I have 4 Swedish girls (I'm fairly certain they were all ordered from the same hatchery at the same time so they are same age) and they're egg-producing-machines.

    How old were your Pekin girls when they started laying? And will the eggs be white?
