RECOMMENDED BREEDING AGE

Though chickens can mate at an early age, you can start breeding them at 9 to 10 months.  This is because we would like them to be physically and sexually mature before we use them a breeders.  A pullet can lay as early as 5 months of age, but usually, the eggs she produced are very small and are not ideal for fertilization and incubation.  Give them enough time to develop and be prepared.
