    I have two sweet little D'uccle's Pongo and Dart (aka dove too) and I know bantam breeds can be slower to mature but I'm curious on when they will start laying. They are about 25 or 26 weeks old.

    Mine generally have started around 7 months. They stop and start throughout the year and don't lay a lot of eggs.
