    6 to 9 weeks seems a little young as a guess here to me... I would venture to call it more like 10 to 12 weeks... and no eggs soon, unfortunately [​IMG]

    I agree, 10-12 weeks and those pale combs and wattles indicate no eggs anytime soon. When it's egg time, those combs and wattles will get red. Gonna be a while yet but they look nice and healthy and will make yummy yummy eggs for you.​

    I'd say those pullets in the first photo are a production red and a red sex link, and approx 12 weeks. My red sex link began around 20 weeks, 22 weeks for the production red. Although, every chick is different. Good luck.
