Yet another stupid question, I know. LOL

I've got these 2 buff brahmas who are the same age as my EE little girls but they are HUGE. What's the average laying age for Brahmas? From my older EEs, I'm not even looking for eggs from them until about 24 weeks.

I've been told they tend to be a little late in the egg production. Lady I spoke with said the comb color was a indicator to when they're ready to start producing, also mine started popping out egges when a rooster was introduced. Strange and possibly coincidence buy we went from 0 to 100% production within 12 hours of his arrival. Birds are stranger than their keepers

It varies with hatchery Brahmas. My Lt. Brahma started at 19 weeks, surprising the heck out of me. My Buff Brahma started at 30 weeks, which I consider closer to the norm for the breed.
