    There's LOTS of variables to this question! You can get your answer by going on the basic BYC search and asking each question;

    "When do Welsummers lay"

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=when+do+welsummers+lay

    Do that for each breed you are looking for.

    In general all chickens average laying between 18-24 weeks. A very few earlier, a few as late as 32 weeks!!

    Look for comb and wattles to turn red (not pink) and for squatting for you. Usually eggs will begin within 2 weeks of squatting.
