    They are almost 19 weeks old. I have 6 Barred Rocks and 5 Buff Orpingtons. I believe it was the Barred Rock that layed. I have 2 with bright red combs and wattles. The others are red, but not bright red. I sent out notices to everyone about the egg. You would have thought I had given birth or something. Hahaha
