At What Age Does A Hen Start Laying Eggs?
Really all depends on the hen. Some of mine started at 20 weeks other started at 24.
My Easter Egger and Silver Laced Wyandotte began laying at 17-18 weeks. Look for your birds to do the "egg squat." Once they start doing it, they're usually 1 to 2 weeks away from laying their first egg.
