Some strains will begin laying at around 18 weeks. Many will not lay until they are 24 weeks old. Still others will now wait until spring, because of winter's darkness. We passed the Autumnal equinox a month ago.

I keep lights on timers all year round, and once they start,my chickens lay year round.

x2 18-24 weeks is pretty standard but there are lots of factors. Also some breeds, like silkies, tend to take a little longer.
