    Love my barred rock!! Don't tell the other girls, but she is my favorite. She started laying when she was exactly 20 weeks old. Shouldn't be too much longer for you!

    One of my barred rock started laying at 21 weeks she laid one egg skipped a day then appeared to lay an egg with no covering/shell or membrane at all! How normal is this? And now I'm worried she may have had a taste... Should I be worried she will be destroying / eating other eggs? Or is it safe to say she won't be able to make the connection between the insides of the egg and a properly formed egg?not sure...any advice?

    My other barred rock is also 21 weeks and has yet to lay....she is the last one to lay... Out of my RIR's & americauna's

    Yours should lay soon! Good luck!
