    Do they pretty much start around the same time as a LF? I have a bantam cochin that is starting to look like a hen..getting pink in the comb.

    I would think so. I have one bantam brahma in with my LF girls, Maggie. She was right in the middle when they all started laying; about 18 weeks if I recall correctly.

    Thank you! That gives me an idea as to when to start watching..one of the fun parts. [​IMG]
