I have 6 red sex links.  One started laying at 18 weeks.  They're now 19 weeks and I have four that are laying.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

I have zero chicken willpower.

I have 3 red sex links and 3 cinnamon queen hens.  All are 21 weeks old and so far no eggs.  Will let you know if I get an egg.  Of course, I am certain the high heat we have here in Phoenix, AZ has something to do with the delays.

I have 10 red sexlinks. They are 16 weeks old, nothing yet.  I feel sure it should be soon, I purchased eggs at the grocery yesterday!
