At what age can I expect my chickens to start laying?
Depends on a lot of things... time of year, the breed, their feed, lighting.
We have heavy, standard breeds. Our earliest (Lakenvelder)started at 4.5 months (16 1/2 weeks) and our latest (Silver Spangled Hamburg) at 5.75 months (23 weeks).
I think 18 to 24 weeks is the average.
