I'd love to hear your answers!
Most will start between 4-10 months based on breed and time of year.
5 months for the first groups...and the chicks of those chicks are starting as early as 4 months.
Around 20 wks for our first batch
Mine started between 20 and 24 weeks...
Orpington , speckled Sussex , Danish Brown and EES...
I always have some starting by 18-20 weeks. Chicks are usually hatched in April. Most are laying by 22 weeks. Breeds through the years were Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, Sex Links, EEs, RIRs etc. This year I have a mix of EEs, Partridge Rocks & Australorps, so it remains to be seen!
Thanks for your answers everyone! I've got red stars 8-1/2 weeks do I've got a bit to go, but I'm so excited!!
EE's covered by EEs and a Cuckoo Marans (I believe he is) Some of the Old English Game were laying a bit earlier too.
