    i was just wondering as i went into this toatlly blind, when i can expect eggs and about how many a day? i know i have 2 barred rocks and 2 golden comets. i have 3 other chicks that you all have helped to identify as pullets(yeah!!!) and possibly 2 of the 3 as BA. so a total of 7. at what age should they start laying and with 7 chickens how many eggs should i expect each day?

    They usually lay around 4-5 months old. You may get 5-7 eggs a day.

    Good luck with them
