BLue Ameracauna hasn't laid! 29 weeks now

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My six are all same age (29 weeks now) First one (red sex link) laid at 18 weeks!  Easter egger laid an olive egg at 23 weeks.... all breeds have laid prior to 23 weeks except my blue ameracauna.  WHEN will she lay?  I now have a dark brown egg, light brown, 2 light pink, a green -- I want a BLUE EGG!

It is very hard to tell when she'll finally lay. Most chickens start laying between 20 and 28 weeks old, so she is a little overdue. However, all chickens are individuals. With the decreasing daylight hours going into winter, it is possible (not probable, since most young birds do start laying despite little daylight, but possible) that she won't start laying until spring or unless you add supplemental lighting.
