    Hey all, my chicks are 13 weeks old today 2 RIR's and a Barred Rock. How old should they be before I should start expecting them to lay?

    They should start laying around 5 months or 17 to 20 weeks.

    Oooh I just counted and I have 4 girls getting ready to turn 5 months, and they are small barnyard mixes, so they should start to lay pretty soon. Wow...
