It depends on how healthy your birds are. If they are in a healthy state, your hen should lay her first egg within 10 days after you remove the dummy eggs.

Is it too late to breed?

Well it depends on where you live and where you keep them. If you keep them inside your house then you can breed year round.

If you live north, like me in Minnesota, and you plan to fly your birds then it is too late to breed. You will only put your young birds through stress over the winter.

Once they get used to their surroundings and feel secure, in a few days, they will begin the mating process, and eggs usually arrive about 5 to 10 days after.
