    I got six RIR mixed with something else... They are such pretty little girls and are about 7 weeks old. (or maybe a little older) They are about 1\\2 the size of my RIR grown-up hens. Thanks

    Usually around 20 weeks of age. It's all up to the chicken and when she is ready.

    They should start layiing around 18 weeks. Varies by breed, varies by chicken.
