    HI, We have some Barred Rocks that are 21 weeks old today and they haven't layed any eggs yet. Any idea when they normally start? I've already had my Gold Stars start laying around 18 weeks, but just wondering if Barred Rocks are normally later??? Thanks so much!

    Wow, that's good to know. Thank you! I thought something was wrong. Everywhere I looks said between 18-20 is when they start.

    I have 2 BRs. Lucy has had large red wattles and comb since 14wks (along with a red sex link) but Ethel (they are now 17wks) still has a tiny comb and basically no wattles. She is the only one in the flock like that, and they are all the same age.

    This picture is was from 15wks old but Ethel (front) looks the same, Lucy's comb/wattles are redder and much bigger
