    These girls are 7 months old approx. My NHR's didn't start laying until they were 33 weeks old either....

    oh mine are 4 1/2 months. I bought them from mcmurray as day old chicks with a hatch date of Aug 5, 2009 10am. So I think I am a bit impatient. I did notice that one of them has started laying on the nest while her sister stands by. this is new behavior because they don't usually go in the nest..
