OK I have 3 jumbos (21 weeks), 18 RIRs (16 weeks old) 1 black jersey giant (16 weeks) and 1 australorp (16 weeks) Shouldn't at least ONE of these be laying by now?? I'm starting to think I'll never have any eggs!!!

Most of my first chickens are 20 1/2 weeks old and none are laying yet. It's driving me crazy!

They are RIR, EEs, Polish, Cochins, Ameraucana, Hamburg, Phoenixs, Black Jap, Silkies and a couple barnyard mixes. The only eggs I get are from my two older auction hens and an Exchequer thats a month older than the others.

I think the posts of people whose chickens lay at 18-19 weeks are the lucky ones. From what I have read and heard, 26 weeks is when to start expecting eggs. If it happens sooner, YIPPEE! If not, then you are not disappointed. Win-win, right?

My chickens are about 6 months old now, 1 buff wyandotte, 3 Easter Eggers, 3 light brahmas. Their faces have turned red but no one even has wattles yet!!! It's killing me!!

I only have one who started laying at 19wks. The other two (only three laying so far) were around 23-24wks. My EE is 25wks and no eggs yet.

Now I really didn't want to hear that Miss. Prissy. I'm worried my aussies are actually JGs and I don't want to wait that long to have all my girls laying!
