    If our pullets are 5-6 MONTHS old, how many weeks would that be?(please excuse my horrible math skills! [​IMG])

    They should start laying soon! [​IMG] I have heard they lay around 20-26 weeks.

    26 weeks is 6 months old. Some lay sooner and some lay later. I read earlier about someone whose chicken waited 8 months to lay!!! I couldn't imagine.

    at 4.3 weeks per month-that would make them:
    4.3 4.3
    x 5 x 6
    ----- -----
    21.5 25.8

    YES YES YES they should be laying anytime!
