    Can someone tell when Fav's should start to lay eggs. They are 6 months old and would have thought they would have started tolay by now . Should I be looking for nest in woods?[​IMG]

    Start worrying when they reach seven months old! Some breeds just don't lay as well as others. Faverolles are cool.

    6 months is when my favs started to lay they are big birds and slow to mature the time of year may also slow down the start of their production. I love Fav's and I may be getting some to replace the old hens I had.
