    Hi! I was just wondering if you chicken experts could help me out here. When will my pullets lay? They are 22 weeks old. They are on laying mash and oyster shells. I will post pics later.

    anywhere from 4 ta 6 months is the general,, some sooner,, some later ,, and seeing that its getting cold,, may take on the longer side.

    Mine are 23 weeks old. I have 20 pullets and I just got my first 5-egg day. So, I still have a long way to go...

    Have their combs and wattles turned red and grown yet?

    Thanks! And their combs and wattles have been working their way up to red, but they're still on light red maybe pink. My cockerel's comb and wattle are as red as a rose!

    P.S., I don't know if you know but, I WANT EGGS!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
