    All four birds are 20wks, but only the two RIR's look close, although the BSL do the squat. They have very little combs and no wattles. In order, Lucy, Abby, Minnie noshing squash and Daisy in the rear.

    My RIRs went to 22 weeks, but yours sure do have pretty red combs! If your home, make sure you periodically listen for panicked squawking, this was how I "caught my first egg in action!" I do not have BSL, so I do not know when they will start, but your whole flock is beautiful!

    I agree, you have a beautiful flock!!!

    My RIR/GLW cross just laid her first egg yesterday! She was hatched in early March. Looks like your RIR girls are going to lay soon.

    p.s. My girl hid her egg - didn't use the nest box. So maybe yours will do the same. [​IMG]
