    Should start in the next few weeks. The leghorn will probably start first.

    Gray Farms has it right, there's not really more to discuss. Most layers will start 4-6 months, sometimes less, not usually more. Leghorns lay eggs like their life depends on it (most of the time it does) and will probably start first. Just be patient and watch for rogue nests.
