    How old are they now?

    A bit more information about your chickens will be a big help!

    We have an all Bantam flock and they began laying between 16 and a half weeks old up to 23 weeks old.

    Although those are the typical time frames sometimes the reality is that they lay when they lay. Some people have waited almost a year.
