    I have a 6 month old Speckled Sussex that's been laying for a few weeks. Nice little eggs, starting to get bigger. She seems to lay every other day. Is this normal for the breed?

    I have a bunch of sussex and they just started laying 3 weeks ago. I'm averaging 3 eggs per day, so clearly not all of them are laying yet. The eggs are smallish, and I'm waiting for the eggs to get larger, but they haven't yet...
