    Days? Weeks? We expect an egg by the third week of June or so, if our girls lay at around 18 weeks (ish). Have started to notice changes in the color of their combs and faces, and am hoping they're not going to go into lay too early.

    Usually a couple weeks, give or take. Has to do with their body maturing......Pop
