Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Most breeds including those you have begin laying from 20-27 weeks, sometimes a little earlier and on occasion a little later. I would expect your pullets to begin laying before long. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

The shorter daylight hours of winter can slow them down some but once you see their combs and wattles getting red and they squat for you, you'll know they are almost ready to lay.

 

Shouldn't be much longer now!

Agreed! You can always have a quiet word with them - just mention things like crockpot, dinner etc. I had one such conversation and she laid her first egg that very day - and don't tell me thats pure coincidence! :lau

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  You have very pretty hens.  I think when they realize spring is just around the corner  ( can't tell here  it's 14 degrees F right now) they will start laying.
