    Our 20 wk old pullets are from our Game Hens crossed with our White Rock rooster. I have been reading that it seems that White Rocks usually start laying around 20 wks but I have not found at what age a game hen starts to lay. And since the game hens found us vs us finding them, long story, I do not even know what age our started laying. Just that one day we were finding eggs all over our farm :O)


    Trying to get an idea of when they may start laying eggs. These girls are bigger then their moms so it will be interesting to see what size eggs we get.

    thanks for the help,
    steph

    I have 2 game hen mixes. Seems like they started laying around 20 weeks or so. Mine are very broody, wanting to brood every 6 weeks, or maybe 8, but I put a stop to that as soon as I notice. Their eggs are on the small side.
