    I have 3 Black Austerlorps and they were 19 weeks yesterday 2 of them have really red combs and wattles one still has a black comb and no wattles. I can not wait I have one girl a Delaware that started laying about 2 weeks ago....I want more eggs and I am hoping it will be soon. So if you have BA's when did they start laying? My other 3 pullets are Easter Eggers they are about 18 weeks and I am impatiently awaiting my first blue egg. If you have EE's how old were thay when they started laying?

    My BA was the last of my 3 to lay, she was almost 23 weeks when she first started to lay.

    Afraid i can't help much. My BA and EE 's are 21 weeks and are not laying, neither are my Brahama, RIR or wyndottes,,,,all the same age. I did get one egg last friday but from who?? it was a very small beige colored egg. Maybe from one of my BA but do not know.

    I have an EE that started laying at 18 weeks. Now - 20 weeks. My Black Australorpe (same age) is still not laying. She doesn't act much like she's getting close yet either. I'm not sure.
