    Ok, first time poster here...I tried searching for this, but I was not very successful so I apologize if this as already been answered. I am a first time chicken owner. I ordered and recieved 20 "blue" cochin chicks back in June. I have 19 left and they will be 25 weeks tomorrow. They have nesting boxes and all are very healthy, but no eggs yet [​IMG] Everything I read says that most breeds will have started laying by now...and I am just curious when your Cochins started laying. Thanks in advance for any info you can give me [​IMG]

    My Cochin hen started laying at seven or eight months, I think.

    Let's see.....I got my Partridge Cochin as a day old chick in March. She is still thinking about it. [​IMG] That is OK because I love her. [​IMG] Her adopted sisters are all laying. [​IMG]

    My standard blue cochins began to lay when they were 28 weeks old and two weeks later one went broody.
