I have six 16 wk old RIR pullets. Just curious. When did your RIR start laying?
4 1/2 months and 5 months. Awesome layers and give gorgeous eggs!
I have 3 RIRs in my flock. Oda Mae laid her first egg at 20 weeks. The other two girls started 2-3 weeks after that.
I have 1 pure Rir and 3 half Rir. They all started laying around 4 months (it was a while ago now so I dont remember for sure). I was amazed at how early!
3 of my RIRs started at 22 weeks.. 1 of them didnt start laying until she was 8 months old! (32wk lol)
I just kept hoping and wishing and one day, there it was
A little over 20 weeks - and kept laying all through winter until they molted the next fall.
I have eight RIR's 25 weeks old. The first one laid at 23 weeks, several more has started laying since then and a couple more will be laying anyday now. It's weird because I raised them from a few days old and they have always been so skittish towards me. Wouldn't let me touch them and now that they are laying they are all over me.
my first laid her first egg at about 6 months 2 weeks, I have 2 others of the same age who are 7.5 months and still no eggs. One is beginning to get redder comb and wattles so maybe not too much longer for her...please, oh please!
I have one that started this week, 24 weeks, and waiting on 3 more. The wait is terrible!
That wait 'bout durn near drove me crazy!! Now that I'm used to getting eggs everyday I miss the excitement of waiting.
