I have two pullets who are both 7mos old. They are sisters but have different moms, their father was a BO but one is half Jersey Giant and the other is half Americana (or was it Araucana? I know it was whichever was a more pure breed, not just an EE). They don't seem to be full size. Still smaller than my adult Welsummer and Wyandotte, the latter whom is already petite. The BO/JG seems to still be growing her wattles, they're maybe a centimeter long at the moment. Both have shortish single combs which I bet aren't full grown. They haven't laid and don't seem to be doing the rooster squat (but then again my SLW has NEVER squatted. We think she's lacking in the brain department though. We had been giving them all the grower feed since maybe October, and just ran out. They had layer feed today and yesterday, after looking online I was trying to decide whether I want to go buy more grower or not. After browsing a thread here about when BOs lay, most people (on the first 3 pages) reported their hens having laid at 5-6 months or so. I'm not sure if it would be different for my hens though because they're crosses. So should I buy more grower or just let them eat layer? Do you think they're about to lay?
