    My hen just started squatting she is 17 weeks old now. I got 6 of them on April 5th. Anyone have an idea when she might start laying? She is a barred rock.

    Should get started any day now! According to the world wide web, barred rocks start laying between 16 and 20 weeks of age, and that's where you are now.

    Happy waiting!
