    Anywhere from six to eight months and some will take longer.

    I am not sure if this will make you feel better, but my hens are about the same age and still no eggs for us.... I get my hopes up every morning and, alas, no eggs- again! [​IMG]

    I can hardly wait. It will make all the poop a bit more worthwhile!! [​IMG]

    20 weeks is a good average, could be a little longer.
