About what age do they usually start laying? The folks I bought them from said around 25 weeks is this about right. I have 6 that are 18 &4 that are 14. There all growing like weeds. I know it will take more time but I'm hungry. The older ones are starting to get red in the face. One thing for sure is their getting big. They like me but are still kinda skittish. I've had them for about 6 weeks. I think this site has made me a nervous wreck. Do this don't do this etc. So my theory is to let them out everyday & sit in the golf cart gun loaded & watch the show. O & have a cold never mine.
