I have my hens strictly for eggs, not pets, and purchased strictly for production. I have sex links to get some brown eggs, and leghorns for high production. My sex links are al laying every day (started at 19 weeks) but my leghorns are not laying yet at 24 weeks. Thinking that as everyone knows, leghorns are the best layers of all breeds, they should be laying. Does anyone know, do leghorns just mature later than the sex links? I expected the leghorns to lay before the sex links.
