    Hi Sarah! (That's my name too![​IMG])

    I've never raised Penedesenca chickens but I do know they are good layers of medium, chocolate-brown eggs. Because of this, I would assume they start laying around the same time as other breeds which can be anyway from 18-30 weeks of age.

    I see the money can be a problem at times, but what other chicks are you getting?
