When did your Delawares start laying?

    I am wondering if Delawares take awhile to start laying. Mine are 25 weeks old, and except for the americauna, they are the last ones to lay. I am used to my birds starting around 20-22 weeks, so I am getting impatient!
    When did yours start to lay?

    Our Delaware, Frances, laid her first egg on Dec 14, 2006. She was 5 months and 20 days old.
