    Will my welsh harlequins lay before spring? They are 8 to 9 weeks old but I was wondering will they? I also have two rouens the same age.

    I would expect the WH to start laying in March/April. Mine all started laying around 5 months old.
    The rouen is more of a seasonal breed, so she might now start until spring. You never know though, if it warms up early she might lay as early as the WH too.

    I have a rouen now that is laying, she is a wonderful layer! I love her eggs.
