It seems like my homers were about 6 months old when it started, you will notice when they start to pair up, then you can expect eggs, you can put the bowls out anytime to get them used to them, and perhaps they won't use the floor like some of mine do
I think it is best to let them hatch babies when they mature more like at one year old or so, they can practice on fake eggs untill then.
