They don't exactly have to start at 5-6 mths, I have a barred rock hen that's 8 mths and she still isn't laying, but my 8 mth old silkie just started laying, my other chickens started about 6 mths old, so maybe any day now you will have a surprise waiting for you!

Lots of different things come into play ... feed, weather, age & amount of light. (and the list can go on and on)

Hang in there ... :)
