My flock is complicated... My five girls (one silkie, one barred plymouth rock, one RIR/cochin mix and two RIR/barred plymouth rock mixes) are about 6 or 7 months old and will not lay. So I got 5 other hens from a friend who is selling his flock, they are about 1.5 years old and are excellent layers. I assume they are common Isa Browns, although one is black(?). Have been getting between 4 and 5 beautiful eggs a day since I got them Some eggs are BIG and some are smaller, some are dark brown and some are paler brown, some have flecks - love the variety! Yesterday I got two more girls from the same flock and this morning I got 6 eggs (out of 7 hens I know for sure are laying), one of the eggs was HUGE and one was a pale shade of pink! Now, I have no idea who is laying what or if one of my "virgin girls" is finally laying, as the eggs are already cold in the nests when I get them in the morning. What do you think?
