    so I am new to this and have had my chickens since June, they were a good size when I got them and have only gotten slighter bigger. I am just curious as to when they start laying eggs. They seem to be getting a bit more aggressive lately and really have take a liking to grass.. they seem to not be able to get enough of it. They are eating well and drinkin plenty otherwise though.
    any thoughts? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] lots and lots of patience...i have 1 of 7 that started to lay tuesday and got her second egg today from one of my two rhode island reds..

    can't make them lay any faster. my rhodies are 22 weeks.. my buffs are 21 and no eggs from them yet except from my 1 rhodie.

    [​IMG] and don't worry. The eggs will come when your girls mature. I have 2 pullets laying and 2 that just came off their first molt. I still have 4 more pullets that need to start laying yet and 6 more to stop molting and start laying again.
