    She's gorgeous. I have a red sex-link cross, a New Hampshire red roo and a White Rock. I raised the girls from day one. The girls are so friendly to each other and to me. My first two started to lay at 17 1/2 weeks, the second two at nineteen and the last two days shy of 20. I love them. When did your girl start to lay? GC[​IMG]

    We have 4 and she is the first to lay at 20 weeks. Of the 4 we have she is the only one remaining from our original chicks we got. Our Buff Orpington was killed and 2 others turned out to be roosters, so we had to give back/exchange them. :(
