    I bought these cuties on Jan 21st. They were a few days old. When should I start seeing some eggs? Thanks! They are the Easter eggers/Ameraucuna types

    Generally the birds should start laying around 20 to 24 weeks. I have had a couple that started at 17 weeks and one that was nearly 30 weeks before she started laying.
