I love our Golden Comet laying hens.
They lay an egg a day without pause and many of the eggs are huge (see eggs on left in photo). We keep these oversized ones ourselves rather than include them in the eggs we barter as they simply won’t fit in any egg carton.
Notice the blue Araucana egg is smaller than even the normal size Golden Comet eggs; the blue one is the same size as the eggs you buy in the store.
The Golden Comets are proving to be sweet-tempered with our children, small body weight requiring less feed, very healthy in a day-ranging scenario, and excellent egg producers. Love this breed. Highly recommended.
