    The EE's are late bloomers from many accounts on this board, so you may be getting 1-2 eggs at peak until the EEs start pitching in.

    My BA hasn't laid and is at 27 weeks. My other gals have laid; RIR at 23 and BO at 24, and I get 1-2 eggs a day.

    I'll echo others advice and let them surprise you with eggs. I couldn't do it, but I wish I had since after 18 weeks I was driving myself nuts until I received my first egg 5 weeks later. Oh boy are they worth the wait.
