    Hi,

    I have a 18 wk old white leghorn hen, and I was wondering if anybody has pictures of their leghorns of POL so I could compare.

    Thanks!

    No I don't have a pic but, you should see eggs from about 20 weeks-6months. The larger the bird the later the laying. When the comb and wattles become red, that is a signal that eggs will come soon. Good Luck!

    Anytime now. My Leghorns layed at 16 weeks. I'm at 19 weeks now with m RIR,Barred and Red Sexlink and no signs....Maybe the season. Maybe my chickens have their own chemistry right???[​IMG]

    They'll possibly start laying soon. Watch to see if they're hanging out in the nesting boxes or squatting. 5-8 months is the most common time for chickens to start laying. =]
