I realize this is probably a redundant question, however I this is my first go at rasing chickens. I have 5 different breeds, Silver laced Polish, Black Australorps, Speckled Sussex, Easter Eggers, and Yokohama, which were born around the end of July and was wondering if they would start laying this winter or if they would start next spring? I did start feeding them layer feed at around the 20week mark. They have also been "messing up" the nesting boxes for the last week or so and the roosters have been trying to breed with the black australorps for the past couple of days. So, should I be expecting eggs any day or have I gotten my hopes up?
