    I aquire a number of pullets at a swap meet a few months back. I've raised them so far and estimate they are around 7 to 8 months old now,and have no eggs yet.I also have a brown leg horn hen two black cochin hens and a black cochin rooster, all similar in age. The older gray hen was also given to me and I have no idea how old she is, but also no eggs. I've had her for about 4 months now and the previous owner said she was laying. Any info is appreciate thanks!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. The hens in the forefront of your pics are mixed breeds. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    You're welcome. The guy told you correctly. They are mixed breeds with Polish in them.

    You will likely get eggs from them somewhere between 20-26 weeks, possibly a little earlier.
