    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.

    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!

    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.

    Good luck!

    Mine just started laying at 21 weeks. (just shy of actually) I *think* two of them are laying. Small lt. brown eggs.
