    They are about 4 1/2 months old now and no eggs yet. When does this breed typically start laying (early? late?). I can't wait!

    My girls started laying at 5-6 months... don't remember exactly when but I know it was in that range.

    I know what you are feeling.. My 2 girls are only 9 weeks old. I want eggs now!

    I bought 2 older hens cause I couldn't wait. [​IMG]

    My older babies are about 10 weeks.....I think they should get off their lazy duffs and at least lay jelly beans or something!!!! LOL

    Edit to add, I have hens that are of laying age...I just want them ALL laying!!! [​IMG]
