Last bought a trio. (A pair of browns and a golden hen) They are old enough to lay but I haven't gotten a egg yet. I set up a light on a timer a couple of days ago to give them 16 hours of light. Any idea of how long until they start laying? The rooster tries to mount the hens but they will have no part of it. I haven't heard him crow yet either. Once I get some fertile eggs to hatch, I want to buy some A & M's to crossbreed them to get a larger sized bird that isn't all white. Any idea on what the color of the offspring would be from browns and goldens?
