    I know it probably been posted but I am on my phone and it is a little more difficult to research on it. How long b4 my barred rocks lay eggs about? They are about 4 and a half months old now I think.

    I have three 22 week old silver-pencilled Plymouth Rocks and they haven't started laying yet. Only one of them have a red comb. The other 2 have small pink combs. They must be really late maturing![​IMG]

    Mine are 24 weeks and 3 of the 6 are laying. Small eggs hoping they will lay bigger eggs soon.
