Depends on the breed, and also if they are hatchery birds or exhibition birds. And then there's the individual birds - even some that are "supposed" to lay at a certain age don't always. My exhibition Ameraucanas don't lay until they are 8 months old.

Quote:I had all of those (except the rir) from a hatchery a few years ago, they all started laying around 24 weeks or so.
