    They lay when they are ready to lay [​IMG]

    They will lay a small off white egg.

    Chickens usually lay anytime after 22 weeks. Each breed and bird will be different.

    My girls are about 21 weeks old. One is laying now. so yes.. 22 weeks is about right. the first egg looked brown, but they are now off white, just as chickenlady said! [​IMG]

    Do hens become broody before or after they lay their first egg?

    My d'uccles are 7 months old and not a single egg! What gives? They get layer feed and greens and have plenty of room. I'm BAFFLED.
