Loretta, my Black French Copper Marans, laid her first egg at 19-1/2 weeks. Then for the next week and a half she hasn't laid again. My Olive Egger, Gigi, and Dominique, Nellie, started laying at the same time, and have been churning out the eggs. Loretta seems healthy, and energetic, so I'm wondering if her system is just adjusting? I'm so excited to have Marans eggs, and the suspense is just about killing me!
