    I'm a cart before the chicken sort of person:lol: So far I thought I had a Dom and I have a Silver Laced Wydotte instead. Instead of RIR I have Production Reds, plus someone told me my BO were not really BO? but some kind of mix;)
    Here are a couple of pics of my White Leghorns (please don't tell me they are not Leghorns). Do you think they look close to laying? They said they were 21 weeks yesterday, I've had them for a month. Thank you all.

    Honestly, they look to be a few weeks away yet...combs are tiny and pink where they should be bigger and red... [​IMG]

    I agree, they definitely have a ways to go in the comb department, but I'm waiting for my first eggs too, I feel your pain [​IMG]

    I've had the experiences you talk about with the seller saying one age, only to find out they are another. Not fun!

    My White Leghorns started laying at around 16-17 weeks... and their combs got REALLY big and red and started flopping over!! I'm not an expert, but looks like to me they aren't going to start laying for awhile yet...
