My long awaiting POL's arrived 3 days ago. They have settled in really well. They are not at all agressive and react to my voice really well (I have spent almost 2 full days talking to them). I have been reading posts about what age hens start to lay and I have to say that I don't know exactly how old they are. I have read about their wattles needing to be red before they will start to lay but not being familiar with the Sussex breed i'm not sure how 'red' is 'red'. I've attached a pic, anyone have a guess at how old they are and when you think I should expect eggs? Thanks in advance, this site rocks!
