I just was wondering about what age different people's chickens start laying.in my own flocks I've had them start as early as 6 months to as late as 8 months. My flocks have always been silkies. They seem to start a bit later than other breeds. My new chicks are now at 6 months and I've not seen any crouching yet so I'm guessing these will be on the later side. I was curious about other people's flocks? So when did your girls start laying?
