How many weeks old do they start laying eggs?
I got my very first egg from my SLW today. She is 24 weeks old. It has been a long wait but I was pretty proud when I found the egg.
My are 22 weeks old.
I have Wyandottes and the slowest hen was 28 weeks before she laid an egg. The youngest was 22 weeks old. You'll be getting eggs any day now. Enjoy!
Mine are 24 weeks and just beginning to get red in their combs.....I've got awhile to wait yet.
Quote:How funny my are 22 weeks also.... let me know when she lays her eggs....
I'm guessing, but I think one of my SLW just started laying late last week at almost 21 weeks old. She was in the box and a little later I found a pale brown egg in there. Definitely not from my golden comets, different color entirely.
Mine just started laying at 21 weeks. (just shy of actually) I *think* two of them are laying. Small lt. brown eggs.
