    I think it sounds like she's getting started for you. I believe it can take awhile for hens to get egg production down! Sounds like it's on the right track though! Congratulations!

    [​IMG] thank you very much for your input. cleaned there coop today a couple of them are making more noise and going in and out of the nesting boxes . i guess i am just over excited to have them laying eggs . they are a lot a fun to feed and watch and the kids really enjoy them as well . and it's also a learning experience for all of us

    My Leghorns' eggs started out small, but I get 3 3oz eggs everyday. (Large eggs)

    thanks all for the input . we enjoy them alot . had i known i would have mixed them up from the start. i would like to get a couple of black australorps but i dont want to have to order 15 of them . maybe one or to of another kind egg layers . any sugestions prefer the more docile one's because we do handle them . and the 12 we are good the red sexlink are more friendly than the white leg horns. except when i go out there with treats then there all there climbing all over me its to funny . we have 6 white leg horns and 6 red sex link . charlie our dog . buster our cat. and six fish that are trying to out grow the tank . and we are from lake county ohio.
