    I have a production RIR that should have laid early and a lot. She didn't lay till almost 8 months old and only does an average of 4 per wk. The comets lay like it's no one's business and early! They start at around 16wks and than press on. They also have personality, but won't brood if someone put a gun to their head lol. And color is fairly basic. Which is why cochins would be a good find. Great personalities, lay a few eggs a week per bird, can be a mom on demand, come in many different colors and develop into one heck of a meaty bird.

    I use the bungee cords too. When the feeders are full they hang low and bob all over the place lol.

    Oh I totally agree about cochins. I am SUPER excited to have mine. Although, I don't think I really need 20 of them..... A friend of mine is taking my 2 splash this weekend. The other 18 I am going to grow out as long as I can to see what I have. I think I have 6 blacks and 12 blues.

    But, I am going to get my egger pen going because 2 per week isn't gong to cut it!! Once I see what all I have for that pen, I will add more pullets here and there. I know I want at least one more BR and a SS or 2, but not sure what else.

    Mine are pretty talkative. Sometimes they just hang out, but if they're hungry, or a guinea runs close by, or some other unusual thing, they need to comment. My poultry are a couple hundred yards from the house, and I can hear them at the house if the windows are open.
