    Any breed will lay well throughout the year with the right lighting schedule.

    Leghorns are very fast maturing, with some hens beginning to lay at 4 months old.

    Our Golden Comet Sex-Links have been amazing. They lay early and fairly regularly through the winter and their eggs are nice and big.

    Sex links,from what I've heard everyone has good luck with them laying really good,and maturing fast,they should start laying around 5-7 months old.
    Good Luck!!
