Usually by 16 wks they are sexually mature and can breed/lay, but depending on what protein % feeds there were raised on, the weather, temps and how much light they get they may bot lay until next Spring for you. They are typically seasonal layers, Spring thru Fall, but occasionally young pullets can and will lay a few random eggs during the "off season".
