In the Brooder

Hi, I have two blue slates that are approximately ten months old. Originally, they were purchased for Christmas and Thanksgiving, but they never weighed in very large. At nine months, they were about 11 pounds each. They have started laying eggs, sometimes doubles. Does anyone know at what age they normally would reach a weight that would ready for the dinner table? Or are they there already? Since they are laying, it would make sense to me that they are putting all that energy into egg production and much less into muscle building.
