    My chickens are 22 and 23 weeks old. We got our first egg almost 1 month ago. Today I collected 27 eggs from my 32 chickens. I am so impressed! Up until today we have been collecting on average 20 eggs a day for the last week and a half. I am happy with the breeds I selected and their egg laying production. I didn't expect to have such a high production this early on. The eggs I have been collecting are beautiful! We are also receiving about 4 double yolkers a day!

    Thanks for letting me share my happiness!

    How Awesome! My original set of hens are 20 weeks and still no eggs. My DH purchased two 1 year old polish and now we get two eggs a day.

    Thank you for your responses. I am still like a kid in a candy store with these chickens. I think I check on them about 10 times a day. Which in turn makes them coming running in my direction when they see me (I always have treats!).

    Wow Congratulation!
    I am the same with my chickens, but I only have 6 hens, so I only get to look for eggs once or twice a day. =P

    and we only have one laying now and she has been doing it for 12 days now although she has only layed 10 days out of the 12 .
  7. You've done a wonderful job with them and you sound delighted! I'll be well pleased too if my golden comet girls do as well- 10 weeks old Thursday![​IMG]
