Chickens start to lay when they are approximately 20 - 25 weeks old, but this can vary from chicken to chicken.  Pure breed chickens usually take longer to start laying than hybrids. When the chicken’s comb and the wattles become a vibrant pink/red, this is usually an indication that it's about to start laying.

Greetings from Kansas and welcome-byc.gif!  I'd say within a few weeks you should start to see some eggs.  Good luck to you!

Anywhere from 18 to 30 weeks.

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?
