    We are new to chickens and are having the best time!

    We got our first six the first weekend of March 2012. We have three left of the original 6, one was a rooster and had to be given away and two were killed by neighborhood dogs.

    The three that are left are laying fine, I think. I have watched all three of them lay an egg.

    Our next six were hatched the first weekend of April, 2012. They are three Barred Plymouth Rocks and three Golden Laced Wyandottes. I have watched the Barred Plymouth Rocks lay eggs, but have not seen the Golden Laced Wyandottes have any.

    I have looked around for eggs in the yard and have not been able to find any.

    Thank you,
    India

    I had slw and br and it took the slw about a month longer to start than the br.Some breeds just mature later than others as some chickens of the same breed do, just watch for the red comb and waddles and be patient it will happen.
