My Barred Rock girls started laying at 21-22 weeks. They are very large, friendly, and beautiful. The largest gal is 8.8 lbs at 10 months, and the rooster is over 12 lbs.
Good to know that they might not start laying until later. As we are getting our chicks next week - hopefully - I am hoping to start getting eggs by summer - but will understand if they don't start until fall.
Life and ink, they run out at the same time, or so said my old friend the squid. ~ Jimmy Buffett
