What age do legbars start laying eggs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

my legbar hens are about 26 weeks and they still aren't laying eggs, they seem very interested in the nest boxes ( roosting on them, sleeping in them, spending long amounts of time in them, arranging the straw etc.) but no eggs yet:( is anyone having similar problems?

Hi and welcome-byc.gif from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. It should be any time now. If you are having hot, dry weather, it could delay them some. thumbsup.gif

Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan big_smile.png

You may ask other legbar breeders in the Legbar thread

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?
