    Hi Guys,

    New to having Chickens - Our first Hen to lay was our Lavender Arucana (YAY).

    I'm not sure if the first few weeks are the most productive but we got 5 eggs in 7 days?
    Is this normal for an Arucana, will it go down from here?
    I was expecting her to lay around 2-3 times a week & only got her for her gorgeous colouring and egg colour.

    Hopefully the rest of the flock will lay soon!
    (Light Sussex, PBR, Barnevelders)


    Thanks for your insight!! :)

    Some birds are more prolific than others, especially at first.
