When should get chicks if I want them to be laying in the spring?
Think 10 months til laying.
They normally start to lay around 18 weeks of age depending on breed.
Ir will also depend on what weather you have. It's wet and cold here in uk so here I would say spring is best time as you need to keep chicks warm until their proper feathers are developed and they can cope with the weather
If you want them laying in the spring, you need to get them now. You'll need to keep them a warm area, yet give them lots of room to exercise and grow. They'll come back to the heated area if they get to cold.
