    I have 2 Austra Whites (a combo of a Black Australorp Rooster and a White Leghorn Hen) and 2 Welsummers.
    About how old will they be when they start laying?

    About 18 to 26 weeks is a good average. Each breed (and bird) is a little different. It sure is nice when they finaly start. Good luck.
