Hello everyone! I just have a quick question. I bought six Buff Pekin Bantam Hens last summer and I was just wondering when they are supposed to start laying. If I do the numbers they are about five months old give of take. I got one egg from them right before it got cold and nothing since then. I know that it takes a little while before they start laying but I was just wondering. When I got them they were loosing their baby feathers and now they have beautiful orange colored feathers. I have never dealt with this kind of breed of chicken before. I am in no rush for eggs because I also have three Barred Rocks and and they are laying like crazy. I had one yesterday that was sitting in the nesting box and every time I opened the coop to feed or water she yelled at me. LOL. Is this a sign that she might be getting ready to lay? Just need some in site as to what to expect of them. I am not sure if they are good layers or not. I have read a number of things on them and have seen where they are good layers and some where they are not good layers. This photo was taken yesterday to show how they look. I am estimating that they are about five months old.
