    I was wondering around what age do the pullets usually start laying eggs? I just got six yesterday and I am not sure of their age yet. I have to call where I got them and find out.

    Those can't be more than a few days old -- no wing feathers coming in yet. They'll probably start to lay at somewhere between 5 and 7 months.

    I might have it backwards but you are only going to have 2 that will lay anyway. Gold Comets are a sex linked bird and the dark red are the pullet and the lighter or "Blonde" are the cockrels. They are great egg layers though! I have 9 and get 1 double every other day out of the group. Seem to be very calm birds too.

    My red sex links (Red Stars) started laying at approx 16 weeks old. Yours look only a few days old. They are so cute!! [​IMG]
