    Buff Brahma Bantam Egglaying

    I think my buff brahma bantam is probably laying and she 18 weeks old, however, she is from a hatchery if that makes a difference. Do you think it is unhealthy or unusual?

    Buff Brahma Bantam Egglaying

    I was wondering at what age do buff brahma bantams generally lay? Do they lay at the same age as brahmas or do they lay earlier/later because they are bantams. Also would two buff brahma bantams of the same age start laying around the same time or could they lay some time apart. Thanks! :)
