Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by barngirlsrule, Apr 27, 2009.
If you have Rhode Island Reds, at what age do they lay eggs?
Mine started at 22-23 weeks.
Mine was 7 months old & started laying 12/27/09.
Bunty started laying at 5 1/2 months old. She's my RIR pullet that I hatched this past August.
She's 8 1/2 months old now.
Mine hatched Aug of 08, and started laying Feb 09. hardly every misses a day - but she's a weirdo. Most reserved, stand-offish chicken I have.
A couple of my RIR's started laying at 17 weeks. Most started laying between 20-24 weeks.
I have a 43 weeks old RIR not laying yet...hopefully soon
i have four RIR....one started laying at 24 weeks (small eggs).....she lays everyday....the other 3 haven't started laying yet....hopefully any day now....
I have 2 RIRs. One started laying about 2 weeks ago and the other is still freeloading. The FedEx stork brought them to me May 1st of this year. The one who hasn't started laying is the biggest out there but her combs are still quite small..
She's also mean. She chases me and pecks at my ankles (but protected the little flock from an hawk.. so she can stay)
