    I have 2 Grey Japanese Bantams who are 27 weeks old and haven't yet started laying. Any idea on when they typically start?

    Mine have all started very early, around 17-19 weeks. I have one who's broody for the THIRD time since summer [​IMG] She lays about 7-8 eggs and then is broody again [​IMG] I can't stand that little hen! [​IMG]
