How long till my cream legbar starts laying eggs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

We hatched 4 cream legbars and one of them has started crowing already so i assume the other one is a hen. I just wondered how long till they start laying eggs?

how old are they? most chickens don't start laying till they are 6+ months old. if you also want gender conformation you can also post full body shots of them.

Purebred cream Legbars should be autosexing.  You should have been able to sex them at hatching and even now you should be able to sex them by color.

if its a pure pure bred CL then it will be a slow starter but soon settle

 

i have 4 pullets and a cockeral myself none are laying yet but cockeral is mature and giving me fertile eggs mating with my other flock girls

 

 

im just hoping i dont get a removal order before the CL girls are old enough
