At what age do cornish X hens typically start laying? I thought I remembered reading that they are generally late layers. The reason I ask - we culled all our extra cornish X cockerels, leaving me with 1 cockerel and 8 pullets. We are 99.9% certain that the pullets are indeed pullets. But now at nearly 15 weeks old I've noticed that most of the pullets are getting reddish in the face and combs. Still have very little in the way of wattles and their combs are small. If it were any other breed I would say that they are getting close to laying age. Thoughts?
