    I'm just curious, at what age did your pullets start laying eggs and what breed were they? [​IMG]

    My oldest silkie pullet started at 18 weeks. She laid a perfect egg every day for 2 months until she went broody. My three next oldest silkies are 6 months& still no eggs. My oldest Ameraucanas are 4 months & no eggs.

    Quote:At 6 months I'm hoping they will start soon, I think that is about average from what I have read on here..
