    Took some more pictures of my lovely ladies out foraging in the yard. My beautiful black australorp Belle is STILL not laying! Just look at those wattles! Even her ears have wattles, if anyone who reads this has an australorp how long did it take them to start laying?
    I love my chooks, they are all such pretty ladies. They were hatched around early March (they are all slightly different ages only by a week or two though) of the five my Red Star Lady, and my Cuckoo Maran Violet are laying.

    I have 2 Australorps. One of them started laying at 18 weeks and the other started laying at 20ish weeks I believe. Give her time, she will lay eventually. Also those "ear wattles" are called "earlobes". [​IMG]

    I had 3 Australorps and they started laying quick, the fastest to lay of any chicken I've had. However I can't remember exactly how old they were. Pretty sure it was about 5 months though. I was surprised.
