    Red sex linked are supposed to lay around 16-22 weeks I believe. II am waiting for my first eggs from my red and black sex linked too. :) They are 19 weeks this week. I had hoped they would be laying already!!

    My black sex link laid an egg two days ago! I really thought the red sex links would lay first.
