At what age will a Sex-link start laying ? - Page 2

post #11 of 34

Mine are 20 weeks. Friday I, just put in some laying boxes, but they also had a dog crate if they wanted to use that.  Of course I also just started them on laying pellets last week.... What are they waiting on?

One of my black sex links was 16 weeks. The other two told her to keep up the good work, but that they weren't ready yet. They're 20 weeks and nothing!

I have 4 red sex links and one rir. They are about 16 weeks and so far two are laying though only three eggs between the two in the past week. All three eggs were double yokers.... hoping the volume picks up this week.

Of the 4 I've had every single one of them started laying the day they turned 20 weeks.

1 Isa brown,
1 Cinnamon Queen
2 Black stars..

All of them are egg laying machines and I got regular double yolkers from the Isa Brown.
