    I thought our RR would have started laying - they are 4 1/2 months old. I know they do well in colder climates but is there a breed that lays better in the heat.

    I don't know what birds are best for warmer climates. Sorry there.

    At 4 1/2 months your hen may not be quite old enough. I've read 4 to 6 months is the average age.
