    I have 3 Easter Eggers, a Little Black Giant, a New Hampshire Red, an Ancona, and a Welsummer - they're all 18 weeks old. I have no idea which one will be first. I'm lookjing forward to finding out, though.

    I think a BO is supposed to lay between 19.5 and 28 weeks. Mine was toward the further end of that range.
     
  5. BARRED ROCK all the way. It is just a guessing game but none the less had to give my 2 cents. My last two batches of barred rocks started laying at 19 weeks. Best of wishes to ya no matter who lays first. [​IMG]

    thanks for the BO timeline. My girls are only 4 weeks old. So I have a long wait. They are outside with a heat lamp. its 50'ish degrees, they have lots of feathers although I would not say they are fully feathered. Hope its not to cold for them.
