    Does this in anyway relate to how old my flock is or how soon I might expect some eggs?

    I have eight birds that I have had for 9 weeks. Here is a picture of what they looked like when I got them.

    Hi, Jamulian! Welcome to the board!

    I have 2 chickens start to lay at 19 weeks, and I had 2 start to lay at 38 weeks...lol

    If your's are 9 weeks older than they are in the picture then I would think you could start to expect in a few more weeks...just a guess, mind you. When the comb and face begin to turn red, it should mean it's gonna happen soon.

    Hope this helps you out!

    Maybe someone more 'educated' can come along and help, as well.
