    I know that the Jersey Giants generally give first eggs at an older age than other breeds. My six little ladies are 15 weeks. Anyone out there remember when their Jersey Giants started laying?

    Mine laid between 5 and 6 months...probably closer to 6 months as an average. Well worth the wait! They lay large eggs and a good number too! [​IMG]

    Good Question!

    I also have two Jersey Giants that I have been waiting for eggs from! They were born in March.

    Sounds like I might have to wait until Sept. to see some eggs.
