    They look Like Red Sexlinks to me. Usually a chicken will lay from 17-25 weeks but it really depends on the time of year, and the breed. An egg will come when the chicken is ready to lay it.

    I agree with Colored Egg Farmer, I think they may be red sex links. This time of year it may take longer for them to start up production. They will start in their own sweet time according to many factors [​IMG] Just have faith and patience and you will be rewarded soon I'm sure.
    WELCOME to BYC!!!!
