    Depends on the chicken. You can usually expect eggs anywhere from 19 to 24 weeks old. They should start to "squat" when you walk up to them and they will develop bright red combs and wattles. That's a sure sign that eggs are on their way. It's never easy waiting for those first eggs though! [​IMG]
