    Update: I got my first egg from the leghorn 3 days ago. She has laid an egg every day since. The weird thing is, she was not the first of my "chicks" to start laying. My French black copper maran started laying a day earlier than the white leghorn. They are the same age.

    Your white leg horns if you get them next week will be 18 weeks old in the middle of June, you might want to reconsider your project for 4H. They may start laying at 18 weeks old but as you see in this thread some were older and much older. Good Luck

    I totally thought this picture was a bad joke hahaa I was like wait, what ? Its funnier that it was not set up [​IMG]

    My white leghorns are almost 16 weeks, seems like it has been Soooooo long. Waiting stinks [​IMG]
     
  9. My Leghorns are 19 weeks and thinking about laying but so far, no while eggs have I seen. I did notice that today they were checking out the nest boxes. So we'll see. We have 7 Black Star sex links and 1 Americana that have been laying since June 6th when they turned 20 weeks.
