I've had my chickens for 19 weeks, i got them at TSC, and I was wondering when chickens usally lay?
Well your leghorns are a breed that typically lays a little before other breeds so I'd say they are going to be laying around 17-25 weeks, right around now. Keep an eye on those nesting boxes! However, don't be alarmed if they start to lay later than expected, different chickens start at different times. I am waiting for my girls to start laying too!! It sure is exciting!
Depends upon a number of variables such as the breed you chose, the time of year, and how you have fed them.
But generally speaking twenty weeks is when you can expect to find the first pullet eggs. Some will lay a few weeks earlier some may lay a few weeks later but generally speaking twenty weeks is when you should begin to expect them.
