There's LOTS of variables to this question!  You can get your answer by going on the basic BYC search and asking each question;

 

"When do Welsummers lay"

Do that for each breed you are looking for.

 

In general all chickens average laying between 18-24 weeks.  A very few earlier, a few as late as 32 weeks!!

 

Look for comb and wattles to turn red (not pink) and for squatting for you.  Usually eggs will begin within 2 weeks of squatting.
