    My chickens are 25 weeks old now and im curious if they will start laying soon or will they wait till spring to start laying since it is so kate in the season? I have 4 easter eggers.

    Thank you.

    The first laying season doesn't matter as far as what time of year it is, your hen will start somewhere between 5-8 months old depending on breeding and genetics, my guess would be around 6 months.
