In the Brooder
- May 27, 2011
We have 2 white leghorns and 3 red sex links. One white leghorn is not laying yet, but all the others are, they started about 2 weeks ago. The white leghorn laid our first egg and all 3 red sex links started within a few days of that. We get 2-3 brown eggs every day and some have gotten quite large so that they are about the size of store bought eggs. However we are only getting one white egg every other day and they are still very small. I thought white leghorns were supposed to be excellent layers, is this normal when they are first starting out? How long does it typically take for their eggs to increase in size? Is it normal that she is only laying every other day while the others are laying almost every day? All are healthy and well fed.
