My Barred Rock flock. They are 28 weeks. No eggs yet. Do you think they are getting close?? Should I feed them anything other than layer pellets?

Wow, 28 weeks and no eggs! They look like they're ready to lay! I have 2 BR at age 20 wks. and no eggs yet for me either! Does anyone know if BR lay later?

I forgot to mention. I asked the guy I bought my chickens from Hey when will they lay the guy said 25 weeks & sure enough bingo. Probably just coincidence.

My BR were 27 and 30 weeks old when they started laying.. BUT their combs were much more red and a little larger than yours are. It seems the combs grew and changed over just a few days after they reached this stage... Keep waiting--it will happen..
