Hello BYC Groups. I'm new as of today October 15/2016. And not sure if I am doing this correctly or not. A friend gave me these as baby chicks on May 17th so they are now right at 20 weeks old. I know I have two roos and two hen but what I don't know is what breed they are. Also when should I expect the hens to start laying? Thanks and I look forward to reading many post and posting pictures of my chickens. I also have 8 Barred Rock hens and one roo that I raised, they will be 24 weeks old this coming Wednesday October 19th and the 1st one laid her tiny first egg on Sept 1st at 17 weeks old and now I have 5 of the seven hens laying. Any help on the ID of the little guys would be most appreciated and Oh when might they start laying? The roo's are so cute and I love to hear them crow. I live on a cattle farm and no close neighbors so crowing isn't a problem.
