I have 3 RSL (golden comets?) and a hatchery RIR that are 20 weeks old. I've read that these types of birds can start laying earlier than other types... but nada!! I did see 2 brown feathers in a nesting box, so maybe soon?? I have one silkie (she is older than the rest) that's already laying, so I hope she will serve as a good example. UPDATE: AN EGG!!!!
