    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! I think 1muttsfan meant to say 24 weeks of age. You said you started small with 250 chickens...WOW! I'd hate to see large scale! [​IMG] Good luck to you!!!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Like the above posters said, chickens start laying at around 24 weeks LOL, some sooner. Depending on the breed. What breed(s) have you got?
