I'm going to take a middle position and neither recommend you get peeps now nor wait until spring. What I have found works for me in incubating my own eggs is to have peeps hatch from January through February. You can brood them normally and as the weather warms decrease temperature. The advantage to hatching chicks in this time frame is that they all seem to start laying early, from the four to the five month mark, even if their mothers didn't lay until 6-8 months.
As daylight increases they start laying, even when young.
Consequently I've had chicks hatched in late April to May not start laying until well past the winter solstice when the days start lengthening again.
My February chicks were all laying by July while I've gotten nothing from my spring chicks, which were broody hatched. I certainly hope they don't wait for the days to lengthen to start.
Well that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the suggestion!
