When did your RIR start laying eggs? mine is about 19 weeks still no eggs... WHEN? im so anxious!
I had two RIR's in my mixed flock. The first to lay were my Black Sex Links, then the RIR's and then the Buff Orphingtons. I'd say mine were about 21-22 weeks before I got the first "dark brown" egg from one of them. They lay prolifically once they get started.
ill post the pic in a little
She looks pretty ready to lay to me! Should be anytime now. Does she do the egg squat for you?
not when i go near her no... I dont see her do it a lot but i see her inside the coop a lot and not in the run.
Mine were about 22 weeks.
Their combs and wattles were a bit darker than your girls, but every chicken is different.
I would say you should have some eggs within the next two to three weeks.
Good luck! The waiting is the hardest part!
