    X2 on White Leghorn hen. You should get loads of large, white eggs from her. :eek:)

    Yes, they are both WL hens as well. Mine have typically started laying from 20-24 weeks (occasionally a little earlier, on rare occasion a little later).

    They are White Leghorn hens. Judging by their comb/wattle development, they should begin laying soon.

    All of the birds are females.

    They should start laying for you by the time they are 24 weeks old or so.
