    I have 3 New Hampshire red hens. Does anyone know at about what age they start laying?

    My first New Hamp egg came at just under nineteen weeks. Two different NH hens laid before 19 weeks and the others haven't started yet.

    My NH is the only hen I have to push off the egg to retrieve it as she loves to sit and warm them.

    Good luck!
