    I'm not to familiar with them, but I believe it is 16 weeks before they start laying.

    I just had a friend who has some tell me that they reach maturity at 16weeks old, but do not start laying until 22-25weeks of age. Hope this helps. :)

    That means they are probably just starting to hit maturity so I would give them a couple more weeks

    1 egg a day and about 100 every year. There is a period in time where she will stop due to the amount of sunlight you will get.
