    I have a 2 of bantam game mixed pullets( their dad is mix, mom is a bb red), i cant remember when their mom started laying, they are 3 and half months old, they will turn 4 months September 5, the rooster is not related to them but was raised with them from a non related pair. Thanks :)

    They should start laying at about the same age as other chickens--around 18-24 weeks. I've found that my bantams (not bantam games) usually begin laying sooner than large fowl, though, so yours might begin a little earlier.
