My first time... I have 14 chicks/chickens that are 3 months old now. When can I expect to get eggs from them? I read in an earlier thread to keep them on the chick food w/med until then. Just curious when they start to lay eggs!
I start to wean my girls from chick crumb to growers pellets at around 6-7 weeks, then from growers to layers pellets at 16-18 weeks.
Some breeds lay much later than others, and if the weathers getting cold some chickens will hold of until Spring to start laying.
I would expect eggs from the earliest of 4 months, usually around 5-6 months
