How long before I get purebred eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I hav e three breeds of chickens...Leghorns, Buff Orps, and Silver Laced Wyn.  I have a rooster for each breed.  Currently they are all around 10 weeks old.  Once they start laying I will be interested in continuing my flock by incubating & hatching my own eggs.

 

 

So how long do I need to separate the breeds before I know that the eggs the hens are laying are going to be "pure bred" and not sex-link?

Never mind I found several answers by refining my search.....

 

For those that see this and want to know...It appears 4 weeks is the most definite length of time.
