When will these monster chickens lay eggs? These girls are huge, compared to some of the same breed that we've seen at fairs. I have 5 barred rocks and 1 RIR. Most are acting like they're going to lay, for weeks now it seems. These girls are approx. 21 weeks old now, have really red everything, and act and sound like I'm reading about. I check a couple of times a day and nothing! I have clean straw in 6 nest boxes, with a golf ball in each, just in case! I have them on layer feed, oyster shell, and all is well. But no eggs yet. I honestly can't believe I'm asking cause I know they'll lay when they're ready. But just in case you have some info, I'm asking! Thank you chicken peeps!
