    OK I know Brahma's are very slow to mature so how old should I expect mine to be before they start to lay?I have 2 light brahma girls that are 5 month's old.

    I have 16 LF brahma hens from a hatchery. One of my lights started laying at 19 weeks. Several of her sisters (lights, buffs and 1 dark) followed in short order and I'm now 6 to 8 eggs a day. They will be 6 months old on Thursday.
    Everything I've read on the other hand says 30 weeks.
