    My first Rhodie started laying at 19 weeks 3 days. Two others started a couple days later, and it took about about 6 weeks until all 10 started laying.

    Just remember that these are guidlines. Each hen lays when she's ready.

    Although when they turned 19 weeks I did start chanting different ways of cooking chicken everytime I checked on them. Not saying it helped any![​IMG]
