So how long do I hafta wait???

Getting a bit impatient.... my two older hens (sisters to the crew of 7) will be 21 weeks tomorrow - and not one egg!! I know my australorps took 22 weeks - but I also remember a thread with a few EO champions starting on their 18 week birthday. Info on variations please??? =D


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Are they getting 14 hours of daylight?  The shortening day length will delay them laying in the fall. We don't really give extra light unless we are collecting hatching eggs.  It is up to you whether you give extra light  or not, but it will definitely speed them up.  :thumbs:

They should start soon.  The weather is miserable right now too that wont help either.  Both my older groups started to lay at 19 weeks old.


Herd of Brown Swiss, a few sheep, red cuckoo basque, Silverspangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben, ameraucanas(EE), Welsummer, broodie silkies and a few more heritage hens
