We have 5 hens that started laying at 18 and a half weeks. They are mostly white, but with a little brown on them.. They are very calm hens and never give us any trouble. They are now 23 weeks, and several of them have never missed a day laying. I highly recommend them. We got them at Tractor Supply. Love this site, we have learned much from you guys; like today I read about the leaves in the run; so I raked up a large pile, and poured them in their run, and they had a blast scratching around in the pile.. Gonna do this a lot..
