i have a few 2 month old chicks
and i cant wait to have fresh eggs
when should thay start laying
depends on the breed, what type of pullets do you have?
im not sure
Mine just started laying at 6 months
mine are almost 3 months
If they're a standard breed, you can begin to expect eggs at 16-20 weeks (roughly 5 months). Bantams and skinnier standards around 22-26 weeks (6 months). Both times vary- some hens hold out until 8 months or longer.
it depends on the breed, I have cochin bantams and they take their sweet time when it comes to starting to lay. I think mine were 5 months before they started. Large Fowl like RIR or sexlinks BO and such usually are anywhere from 16 to 20 weeks I think
we have bantams
unfortunately you have a ways to wait yet. Bantams mature slower and can be anywhere from 5 to 6 months. When they do lay an egg you will feel like you hit the lottery, at least I did
hahaha thank you so much
