Any where from 18 weeks and up. By the time they are 30 weeks old, they should be laying on a regular basis and producing consistant size eggs.

It started with one dog. A Golden Retriever.  Now we have six Golden's and Popcorn is our pride and joy. Next, we got chickens, then bunnies. Now we have a crazy number of chickens that is growing by the day and includes Heritage RIR'S, Delawares and BBS Orps.

Could be anytime.
My "complete encyclopedia of CHICKENS" says between 4 and 5 months. They lay on average 220 eggs per year.
