    My chickens are 5-6 months now and still no eggs. Do the different breeds matter or could they start laying tomarrow/soon? What is the age range of egglaying also?

    around 5 months. My understanding though is sometimes in really warm climates they may wait until the fall to lay. the age range is dependent upon breed and type of chicken. Heritage chickens can take up to a year. While a production sex link of mine started laying at 15 weeks.

    15 weeks is 3 months 3 weeks 16 weeks would be four months so you have a month or less to wait. If their combs and wattles are getting red it could be any time now.
