    I am pretty new to this... I got 6 black australorp pullets today that are supposed to start laying end of October. Since that doesn't exactly tell me how old they are, I was wondering if anyone could share how old they think they are. I am trying to upload a picture but it's not working

    Most breeds start to lay between 5 to 8 moths

    If your Black Australorps are scheduled to lay around the end of October, they are likely around 4 months old.

    Thanks, I figured but wasn't sure. I was trying to upload a pic so you could see what they looked like but everytime I've tried, it never shows up.
