    My son recently got 5 RIR pullets. They are about 2 1/2 - 3 months old. I know that most people say that chickens start laying eggs at about 24 weeks old, but I am wondering if RIR's start laying sooner that 24 weeks.

    Mine started at 17 weeks but the weather was very nice much earlier than normal for the season when they started.
