    I'm not sure if it'd be about the same, but my red sex links started to lay when they were about 4 months, or 16-17 weeks, old. Most layer breed chickens lay around the 20-25 week mark from what I've seen.

    My red sex links were the first to lay ( I have an Australorp, Buff Orp, and Barred Rock) I believe it was about 20 weeks, it was mid winter with no extra lights and took me by surprise :)
