    I purchased 1 speckled sussex hen & 2 pullets. The hen is laying but the 2 pullets are not, yet. [​IMG] The 2 pullets' hatch date is March 09. I know that speckled sussexes take a little longer to mature but I was wondering how long?

    Mine is only 4 months old - so I am still waiting too. [​IMG]

    Not until 8 months. Took forever, but now she lays 5 eggs a week.
    My wife calls them her 'pink' eggs.
