    they will be able to lay around four months. However if they don't have enough day light they won't lay.(15-18 hrs)

    Four months may be a bit soon for a Barred Rock, at least in my experience. Usually start getting the first eggs from them at around five months or thereabouts depending on the time of year they reach that age.
