    Curious how long I should expect to wait to start getting eggs. I've read on here before 9-12 mos. I'm hoping it's a lot earlier than that!! Just wanting numbers to compare. Thanks!

    The larger the breed, the longer it takes for them to reach maturity, and they aren't even full-grown until after age two. You have the largest breed there is, so you are just going to have to be patient. Do not expect an egg even a day before age nine months.
