    good question unfortunately I don't know but as they haven't yet started laying am guessing 16 weeks, think the grey orpington is the oldest as she is the biggest, although the hamburg might be a similar age as she is a smaller breed?

    Thanks for that. What makes you say that, is it to do with the comb or wattle?

    The Silver Spangled Hamburg depending on it's age for a rooster should have a much larger comb, and very noticeable sickles and hackles. We raised Hamburgs and the pullets took forever to begin to lay.
    Here is a pic of 2 Roosters and 1 Hen that hatched in April of 2011 and pic is from Nov 2011.
