    My chick(en)s are 15 weeks tommorow. I am wondering when I shoudl expect to see eggs. They are RSL and a welsummer. I have them on a 20% starter until they lay, but they forage as well.

    Don't EXPECT any eggs for at least another 6 weeks. If you get some before then then you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    20 weeks is about average.

    It depends on your individual strain of birds. I would be looking for eggs around 20 weeks of age....not to far off eh?

    Mine were twenty weeks old on Saturday, and I got my first egg yesterday (and second egg today!) - they're Americanas. Like clockwork, and right in the nesting box![​IMG][​IMG]
