    I have buffs and rsl that are about 25 weeks. They don't even act like they want to nest. We also have a black fancy banty the same age who lays 5-6 eggs weekly for about the last month. They are all the same age. Should I worry?

    I'm thinking they may surprise you with eggs very soon!

    Good luck

    They are coming.....be patient. That 20 wk mark is possible, but those are for the early birds only. Don't think for a second that is the average. A lot of mine were 30 wks and over before I saw an egg from them. Don't worry. You will have eggs soon and laugh about this waiting later on.
