Hello, I have just finished reading the posts concerning the Golden Comet rooster. I have two of the rascals. All I wanted were some hens and some eggs. I now have two evil roosters that chase and peck my two mini dachshunds. The chickens are free range, and the poor dogs won't go beyond the fence anymore. Oh well, such is life never any guarantees. When hens begin to lay, are the first eggs small? I wasn't expecting any eggs until October, but we found 3 small eggs today.
