    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm thinking maybe between four and five months. You should get the first egg from them in another month or so. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your pullets.

    I would say that they are probably 4-5 months old. Getting closer to laying eggs, but still not quite there.
