    Has you're order arrived yet? I'm wondering what their quality is; I've heard bad things about Ideal's quality.

    Mine didn't start laying until 6-7 months. When looking online a lot of people say they are slow starters and are often 9+ months before they start laying well. Last year I only got 2-3 eggs a week and she stopped over the winter. Since spring has rolled around I am already getting 3+ eggs a week and she isn't showing any signs of slowing down.

    I'd try to give her some more time, it's always the late bloomers that end up being good eggs. Look at it this way, it's not like they eat a lot!

    I just got my first Porcelain. She was a loner at the feed store. I know, I shouldn't buy from there. But, she was soooo sad. I tried to put her with our other 1 week old pullets, but they did not take to kind to her. So we are going to make her a pet. And we named her Karin...she's a girl with a big attitude. Any and all suggestions good and greatly appreciated.

    Is my girl a porcelain? Her mom was. But I don't know enough about chickens to know what color she is tending towards. Can you even tell at this age? 1 week old yesterday.
