    I'm feeling blessed. My 10 pullets are all finally laying. A BO was the last holdout and she started this week at 28 weeks of age. The first one to begin was a white Leghorn who has now been laying for a month, an egg a day without fail.

    For the last 10 days, I've been getting between 7 and 9 eggs per day. I went 9/9 twice before the BO started. This is from 3 EE, 2 BR, 2 RIR, a WL, a BO, and a BA.

    Now the eggs are all mostly medium size now but for the WL egg, it's already a jumbo. But I know with time they will get larger.

    Thankfully I've been able to free range most daylight hours and they've returned to the nest to lay. No yard eggs yet.
