Hi All, I have two australorp hens and an easter egger and I am wondering when I will be getting eggs? Our rooster was mounting one of the australorps that is a bit older than the others, we were hoping that meant that she was getting ready to lay eggs, but we are clueless. they are between 17 and 19 weeks old.

This time of year with days getting longer, they'll kick in about 20 weeks or so.
Most birds combs and wattles get dark red about a week or so before they start.
