    Quote:I cannot tell you exactly what age..

    Mine are usually 9 months old to a year.. but they do not lay in the winter time here is wisc.. so last years hatch usually lay in the spring..

    I have some very late Nov and Dec hatched youngsters that I am watching.. I am wondering if they will start in May at around 6 months..

    The Jakes seem to be mature enough at 6 months, so I am assuming the hens will be also..
