    Most Chickens lay between 20-26 weeks.
    Why are they tethered , do you not have a coop for them?

    they look old enough to lay but with it winter time and shorter days you might not get any until next year

    I don't think you were prepared for the chickens if you don't have safe housing for them.

    They look like game birds too me.

    they could be fighting game hens, as they look like some we have and thats what a judge called it. i would do more research and at least a month of isoltaion before introducing to an established flock as they could have some type of health problem. they really look like mutts and i wouldnt breed them just harvest the eggs.
