New to chickens - how long till the eggs come?

Recommended Posts

We have had our 2 speckledy ladies for a week now. They are now 27 weeks old, and seem to be fine- eating & drinking well, busy when free-ranging [though lazy as heck when in the run!] One of the ladies has a little diarrhoea, but only now & then.


As the pelvic bones are open, the lady we got the from [recommended to us by another owner] thought that they were ready to lay. We expected a short delay from the stress of moving house, but several people have now told us that we should not expect eggs until February!


Can this be true? :?
