Thanks. I hope they will wait for 4 weeks before they start laying. They are outdoors and the eggs will freeze if I am not right there when they are laid.
Our golden australorps pair have been laying since early November. We have 7 birds from them. They are almost ready to start laying now. Two are a sort of Lavender color. Parents are mostly black/brown. Darker body on them.
I started helping the farm owner in April and this is all new to this city guy!!! LOL
