    some start at 3-4 months, other breeds might not lay until 5-6 months.

    Best thing you can do for them - feed them well and be patient!

    I only have a buff orpington out of your bunch but any of the chickens I've had don't usually hatch until 5-6 months, being closer to the 6 months.

    They usually lay about 4 1/2 months. One of our little ones laid and small egg today she is almost 4 months.
