I have 4 game bantams pullets 20 weeks old
Splash Cinnaman Goldien and Marlet

Splash has red face comb and waatles for 2 weeks now
Her voice changed when she was 12
Others 3 has pinkish face
About 2-3 weeks ago they have started bwaaking

Today I heard egg song or warning call only she was making that
So I thought Spalsh is doing it
When I looked outside it was Goldien
Egg song or warning call wasnt that loud but was clear

Are they close to laying ?
How long should I have to wait ?

One more thing their mum started laying when she was 26 weeks old
So they will lay at 26 too ?

Given the breed, I would guess that 20 weeks, especially this time of year, is too early to expect eggs. They very well not start laying until the day light period reaches at least 12 hours.
