    I'm just wondering when everybody's sexlink(s) started laying.
    What color and how old was she when she laid her first egg?

    Ok so here's mine- Red and still waiting at 15 weeks+6 days!!

    We have two Black Sex Links, and they both started laying on the same day: 16 weeks, 1 day.

    They've laid every single morning since (31 days, now!).

    Mine are 16 weeks tomorrow, so hope for some good luck when i go to let them out of the coop!!! [​IMG]

    It's so frustrating everytime i go to check on them, i instinctively look in the nest boxes and i leave empty handed. [​IMG] I WANT EGGS!!!!!!!!!!!
    I HOPE THEY LAY SOON!!!

    Its so interesting to hear about other peoples birds tho, half the time when i come on to BYC, i don't even log in..i just come to read about everybody's flocks, and also problems and solutions. Thanks all!

    Anybody else that hasn't yet, feel free! I wanna hear!!! [​IMG]
