    Question at what age do pullets start laying? I have RIR,easter eggers and red productions.

    Your EEs will probably be the last to lay.

    Your other ones might start laying around 5 months, and the EEs around 6 months. This is what I experienced, although I had sex linked RIR crosses and EEs.

    My EE was the first to lay at 5 months(about). Generally 5 months is about average. Some breeds will start laying earlier and some later.
