So I have two red sex links that are 23.5 weeks old. One has been laying for 5 weeks. The other, not at all. I also have 21.5 week old BO, RIR, GLW, Barnevelder, and Australorp. The Australorp, RIR, and the other sex link have had red combs and wattles for a month. Over a week ago, the RIR and sex link started squatting when I go to pet them. And nothing. No eggs. The days are getting shorter and colder here... but if they're showing signs, shouldn't they be laying by now? I know they do it when they're ready, and I know it's early, but I got so excited when they started showing signs of laying. My husband is even dreaming about more chickens laying.
