    Hard to tell...really depends on the individual chick... I have seen as early as 16 weeks and as late as 8-10 months [​IMG]

    My barred Rock pullets started at 6-months....so if yours do the same, that would give you 2-months and 1-week to wait on them.

    seems like a long time---but so worth the wait.

    Somewhere between 5-6 months is most common, so you've a few weeks to wait yet. Once it does happen it will seem remarkable that in just 5 months a chicken can go from being IN an egg to LAYING that same egg.
