Hello everyone! My girls, are now approximately, 15 weeks old. Obviously give or take a week based on what the pet store had to tell us when we got them. (Beginning of May we were told they were 2.5 weeks old) and they in this last week have started to lay. Everywhere I have read, it seems a little early, but I'm not going to complain. Anyhow, back to my question, when they first begin to lay, do they kind of go on and off laying? I have 4 girls, (2 ISA Browns which will be strictly for laying, not meat, and 2 Columbian Rocks); last week I was starting to get 2 a day. Now it's down to 1 if I get one at all. I'm still fairly new to the whole chicken thing, so I'm just wondering if that's normal when they first start to lay, or when they get on routine of laying, will they go for a few days say laying an egg everyother day, to not at all for several days? And in case it matters, yes, they have been very small eggs, as in, the yolks have been about the size of my thumb nail, but I know that's how they start out also. (lol) I also know they slow down in the winter, but it's mid summer here and perfect. Any suggestions, or info would be great. Thanks in advance Shantel The pic is a couple weeks old now, the CR's comb and wattles are bright red and the ISA's are very red also, just not quite as red as the CRs.
