We have 24 BR pullets and 4 roos - all will be 20 weeks old on Sunday. We've raised them since day old. They are having sex constantly and the the majority of the pullets have very dark red earlobes and wattles. We've had the nesting boxes up now for a week and have mixture of dried grass and pine needles in the nests. The chickens have been sitting in the nestbox and investigating it - Roos too. Anyone who has BRs care to hazard a guess at how close we are to getting our first 'anxiously awaited' egg? Thanks.
