    Our three barred rock pullets (that's the first time I've called them that, my girls are growing up) are seventeen weeks old. We are conducting an informal poll here about when the first egg will arrive. Flora has grown a wattle and is red. Anyone want to make a guess?

    My first eggs came at abt 20 wks, but I am pretty sure those early eggs were from the RIRs. I think the first BR eggs (lighter color) came a week later.

    My first BR (out of six) started at 18 weeks, three days old just a couple weeks ago. Yesterday I had my first four-egg day, and suspect one could be from my Buff Orp. I was getting two medium brown, and one light brown a day. (Now it's three med, one light.) Still waiting on the other eleven girls. (The other three BRs, one Leghorn, a Buff Wyandotte, and six production reds.)

    Whoops! Forgot to add my guess. 8 days!
