Is there a chart that will show approximate age till laying by breed?
Not that I know of, you might try a search and If you want you could try to start one.
There seems to be so much variablity, even within breed, depending on weather, nutrition, health, etc. I have read most pullets begin laying by 18-22 weeks. All should be laying by 24-25 weeks. It would be interesting to gather data and compare notes. Unfortunately, we have only 2 laying pullets at the moment and we can't verify their exact age, but we believe they are between 21 and 24 weeks.
Quote:I agree with sillyaboutchickens, right now we only have 3 hens laying (one is sitting right now) 2-silkies dont know thier age and 1 cuckoo maran she is 6mths. NOW , we do have 5 more hens around 7-8mths. who have not layed an egg yet . BUT we hope the others will soon .
