People will post that "I got an egg from my 6-week old pullet!" (okay maybe not quite that young, but it will be a relative low number.) then some poor newbie BYCer who has 7 -week old chicks panics because his/her's aren't laying. At this point they are convinced they have a bunch of duds or that they are doing something wrong or feeding wrong or some such thing. At any rate they're having a panic attack of deep proportions and they want to know what they have to do to get their pullets laying. Okay you first timers: That first egg is going to come when the individual bird is ready which will be a combination of facts, age being only one, with breed, temperature, season and just metabolism are some of the others. Pullets are like teenagers and they all mature at different rates so relax and enjoy them.
