I have 6 hens, one of which is laying. We got our first egg from her on the 26th of July. We've gotten 8 eggs from her, all but two were double yolks. She's our speckled sussex and I love her My other girls, on the other hand, had better get in gear...lol. They are all 22 weeks old at this point...so I'm hoping that they will soon start laying.
