    My chickens were born at the end of April, and are laying. My question is; will they molt soon or will they wait until they are older???

    Probably wait until they are older. But I did have 2 that molted last year at 9 months old. One was a light molt and the other a severe molt.

    In my experience they usually moult about a year after they start laying.
    BTW. want to go back and change at "o" to an "i" in your title? I first thought this thread had something to do with SE Asian chickens.
