well, it depends upon the variety.

Sex links, Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Production and NH Reds, Orpingtons and Polish all start laying right around 20 weeks.

Marans usually take a few extra weeks

My EEs and Ameraucanas have taken up to 9 months before the first egg appears.

Good luck!

I was wondering when NH Reds may start laying. I have 3 NHR's and 3 White Leghorns. Both the NH Reds and the Leghorns are 19 weeks. The Leghorns have been laying for about 2 weeks now. I was hoping the Reds would take the hint from the Leghorns, but nothing yet. Anyone have a guess as to when the Reds may start? All the signs have been there for about a week - red comb, yellow feet etc... but nothing yet. Standing by in NH......
