I have hatched 4 new chicks that are about 5 weeks old
will they lay at the normal 20ish weeks or so
Or because the are late summer babies will they wait till spring??
That is if they turn out to be girls :)
It's impossible to know for sure. A lot depends on the breed and the individual hen, as well as the conditions in your specific area. You won't know until it happens.
If the breed is a high production breed they should lay at twenty weeks. If a regular breed i think that some might wait until spring but some might start laying and just not lay very often.
