when do bantys start to lay??
i have 6 i am waiting on...they are 19/20 weeks old
thnx 4 the info
It depends on the breed..they lay about the same as the lf birds do.Average age is around 6 months but some breeds begin earlier and some take their own sweet time
My Bantam SP Rocks started at 17 weeks last October. I always heard bantams mature faster, but I don't know.
I have 3 bantam pullets and I got my first egg 2 days ago. They will be 6 months old on Monday. It was the Sebright who laid the first egg. She already laid egg #2 today and the other 2 have yet to lay.
I have a few bantam pullets and we got our FIRST EGG yesterday! At 20 weeks old. Probably won't get another one for 6 months if you ask my husband (he said that exactly "Wait 6 more months and you might get another one") I am no expert...just sharing how long my wait took.
thnx for the info everybody...
my silver sebright will be the last to lay i think when they do start...she barely has any comb and is just starting to turn pink
my red pyle will be the first i think since her comb is big and bright red already...
my 2 bb red will be next and then my 2 mille fleur d'uccle
actually...i take it back...my little black silkie will be the last to lay since they dont start until they are about 9 months old i think
guess i will just keep my ears open for a little voiced egg song and a small white marble...lol
thnx again everybody
