I have 3 brown leghorns, 2 EEs, 1 Black Astrolourp (sp?) and 1 Buff Cochin....what age do they start laying? i gave away all my old hens (that weren't laying but 1 egg a day out of 7 of them), and I'm anxiously waiting to see a green egg pop up I got tired of feeding the oldies and not getting eggs. So, now with a whole new crew....when can I expect to see some results? The leghorns are at LEAST 6 months old. They are the most wild and skiddish birds I've ever seen...very wild and un tame. the others raised from just a week old, and they are great. but they are about 4 months i think. any ideas would be great. I'm hoping one day I'll go in there and it'll be like Christmas...I'll have all sorts of diff eggs, haha.
