    Around 6 months. If they reach laying age in colder months they might not start laying until spring.

    I got mine last year in april and she started laying in sept. and layed thru feb. She started back in sept. this year and only laid for about 6 weeks and has stopped again. I think she has gotten to fat to lay now. I want to put her on a diet but I would have to keep her separated from the rest of my flock and she wouldn't be happy at all.
