Hello! I have 6 red sex link chickies and they are about 8.5 weeks. I'm not expecting eggs until July-ish but I'm just wondering what is normal time for when hens start laying?

My old ones started when they were around 5 months, although I have hear that some start earlier, around 4 months.

Mine were 31-34 weeks or so when they started. BUT I got fall chicks, so they waited until it started warming up a bit in March to begin laying. Might have been different if they were spring chicks.
