I'm getting tons of eggs from my Blue Cochins and Birchen Cochins. Heck even the Mille/Buff Cochins have begun to lay though their rooster is young and not with them yet. Who might you ask is the slackers? The Mottled Cochins! UH!!! I have a trio and then 5 juveniles 3 pullets and 2 roos. The oldest group is way beyond old enough to lay but I've yet to see an egg one. I think I may add a nest box soon just to see if I can encourage an egg from them. Gosh! Edited to add, I need to learn to proofread before I hit submit!
