    I have three hens -- one Black Star, one Aracauna, and one Leghorn/Orpington mix. Waiting for eggs. Who else has 15 week olds?

    I have 10 RIR pullets that will be 16 weeks old this Friday. No signs of egg laying yet though. [​IMG] My babies are so grown up now!

    I'm right there with you. 16.5 weeks old and nothing yet. My understanding is that I have some waiting to do yet with my Buff Orpingtons and Light Brahmas, but that I might expect eggs soonish from my Barred Rocks and Production Reds. No squatting or egg songs yet, but Coraline's comb and wattles are coming along nicely...what do the experts think? Will Coraline be making me breakfast any time soon? Here she is last week:

    Quote:I have nineteen pullets, 4 of which look just like Coraline. I think some are laying now. hard to tell when you have 19 and they are five breeds.
    I got mine on 3/11, the tetra tints from TSC have been laying a month now.
    They lay light cream eggs so I could tell they were first, I think at 16 weeks they were laying!
    I was tickle with that, and they have the personality of all.

    I am waiting for my first egg! My 3 girls are 17 weeks old. NHR, BO and White Leghorn. Their wattles and combs are turning bright red just in the last week. I keep looking for signs. I heard through the egg-vine that the White Leghorn will probably be first to lay.

    I'm going to have to start leaving the girls in the coop/run until noon. The thought of my first egg going unfound if it's laid while they're out free ranging is just too cruel to bear.
