    Pretty birds-are they laying yet? I've got 4 RIRs that are 10 wks old. I am hoping they start laying by mid-Sept. I've got 24 hens total-I ordered an assortment from Murray McMurray and I know most of the breeds but I am still trying to figure out a couple birds. I think when they are adults I'll be able to tell for sure what they are. Until then, I'm enjoying the mystery in guessing [​IMG][​IMG]

    Pretty girls. My RIR was hatched the first week of February and she is laying nicely now. The eggs are still kinda small but that will change. She has a much more developed comb than your girls. They are great chickens, friendly and curious.
