this is a question i had on this thread but no one answered

 

She's been practice laying since she was 16 weeks old? and she 34 weeks now :/

Her sister is the same age as her. i know all chickens are different when they start laying but im vary worried something else is wrong.

I used to have a little Old English Game bantam named Pearl who would always go to the nesting boxes from a young age and make herself a little nest and just sit in it for the longest time without laying an egg. For weeks she would do this, but she never laid an egg until one day I went to go collect the eggs and found the tiniest little egg I've ever seen. From that day on we got quite a few eggs from her. We called them "Pearl eggs". I think Blondie will lay eventually, maybe she's waiting until spring time to lay. :hu
