My girls were 23 weeks when they started laying, and it was only two EE girls. The rest of my non-bantams at 25 weeks (golden campine, GLwyandottes, delaware, light brahma, partridge cochins, black australorps, red sexlilnks?) are not even laying yet. VERY frustrating! Then I have 5 bantams (silver and golden sebright, silkie, silver duckwing??, mille fluer d'uccle) are 21 weeks old and no eggs. Sigh ..... At least I'm getting one pretty green and one pretty blue egg a day. I *almost* have a dozen! Hopefully, that benchmark will be today.
