    I have 4 barred rocks that are about 17 - 18 weeks old .

    They are getting their combs and wattles really QUICK this pass week . Noticed one of them squatting, and another laying in the nest .

    What age do they usually start laying ?

    I find that my BR's usually start to lay between 18 -22 weeks.
