i have two Engliah Orpingtons about 9-10 months old, one Wheaten Marams who is about 14 months old and one 8-10 month old hen who is 1/2 Blue Copper Marans and 1/2 Easter Egger. Aside from the occasional egg here and there, none of my hens had begun laying regularly until Daylight Savings started last week. And then all of a sudden: BOOM! All four hens are laying pretty much daily. And look at how pretty they are!
