    I have 16 Easter Eggers. They are now 24 weeks old. Only one is laying and she's been laying for a month now. They are just as big as my year old sex-links. Not sure what is going on.

    Since EE vary greatly in genetic make up, onset of egg laying and quantity of eggs produced (as well as color) can be all over the map. The upside is that they generally remain productive longer than some of the high producing birds.
