About 10-20% of the birds will lay at 18-22 weeks. By 30-35 weeks, about 90% will be laying. This is where the peak normally occur. After peak, egg production gradually decline and reaches 50% at 60-70 weeks. This is when the birds are usually sold off or molted.

molting is when pullets shed their feathers. it usually happens before they start laying. one of the early signs of maturity.
