    Hey there, I have 6 Asian blues and I'm just wondering if anyone knows when the hens start layin'? I bought them from TSC a week before Easter. Thanks

    I'm not familiar with that breed but how old are they? If you put "Asian blue chickens," in the search box - you may find more information about them. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Pullets start laying on average ages around 20-25 weeks, but if differs quite a bit between breeds, husbandry practices, and other factors also have an effect.

    They were a few days, maybe a week old when I got them from TSC. That was a week before Easter, so 12 or 13 weeks or so!?
