    Welcome to Backyard Chickens! We are glad you joined the flock!:welcome BYC is a helpful site providing all the information you need to know about poultry! There is always space for more members on the BYC roost!:highfive: They don't look like they are coming to that egg laying stage yet according to the picture by the development of their combs. Maybe in another month they should start. Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!

    Welcome to BYC. If those are recent pictures, it will be a while before you get your eggs.

    Hello and welcome! I got my first egg on the 3rd! Only one of my ladies are laying. She was 20 weeks 6 days. Today I got my 3rd egg. I'm sure she's just warming up! I hope you get eggs very soon! It always feels like Easter morning for me when I go check the nest boxes now lol.
