Hello. I have read that some breeds are known to lay for the first time earlier and later than others. I have the following:

Black Austrolorp
Blue Andalusian
Welsummer
Silver Laced Wyandotte
Gold Laced Cochin
Easter Egger
Salmon Faverolle

Do you know which of these girls tend to be earlier and later layers and at what age I can expect them each to maybe lay?

Thank you!

CJ

The Black Australorp are usually around 20 weeks, which is about the average for most good laying breeds, and EE's are known to tend to be late layers. Don't know about the others.

Are your birds hatchery or breeder quality? While I myself think there's absolutely nothing wrong with HQ birds for a nice backyard flock, it can make a difference when it comes to laying.

My SFs started laying around 24 weeks, but OMG! The three that I have are the broodiest things!

My SFs, as I said, 24 weeks. Expect the cochins to be later; the easter eggers too. The other breeds I don't have experience with.
