    I have some bantams that i want to show in fair. They're about 2 weeks old at the most, and I was wondering if they would be mature and laying eggs by July.

    Would depend on breed. Smaller breeds of bantam without extreme features (Old English Game Bantams, Dutch bantams, etc) might be close to ready by the end of July if they're pullets, even then cockerels might not be ready. Of course, since it's a fair, competition won't be as stiff as at an actual show so you'll probably be fine.
