    I've finally been able to get the girls into their new home where I can get a decent picture of them. Can someone tell me approximately how old they are and when they should start laying?

    I'm guessing between 8 and 10 wks. old. They look to be about the size of my 9 wk. olds. [​IMG]

    Yep... 8-10 weeks... probably will start laying in about 3 more months, if I had to guess. [​IMG]
