    My 23 week old hens only started laying about 2 weeks ago. We have been getting 3-5 eggs per day from 12 hens so far, but they have all been frozen. We finally figured out our nest heating situation and we now have 2 dozen nice warm eggs collected over the past few days. They are really beautiful! The Olive Eggers were the first to lay, than the Easter Egger and now my Welsummer and Barred Rock are laying too!

    Those are beautiful eggs! Olive eggs and Welsummers are on my "wish list" (along with, oh I don't know, maybe a few others)!
