    My Tetra Tint started laying at about 18/19 weeks, she was my second layer after my Norwegian Jaerhon to start laying. (You can see my other breeds in my signature) Now at 6 months she usually lays large to jumbo sized brown eggs with white speckles.

    Supposedly a hybrid produced for Tractor Supply that is a cross between a white leghorn rooster and a rhode island red hen.

    [​IMG] Wow..I am impressed with how pretty they turned out to be. I thought I may have gotten a couple of tetra's but they turned out to be all leghorns! I wish I would have gotten one of the Tetra's...they turned out great! As for laying..my leghorns just turned 22 weeks and they are all now laying...laying machines they are!!

    My tetras just turned 19 weeks today and no eggs. No sign of reddening in their combs, either.

    Got my first TT egg today! They are roughly 17 wks old. Can't remember exactly, but that's real close.
    Her egg is the cream colored one in the middle.
