34 weeks and still no eggs

Thread Starter 
I have a white chicken with slate legs. Im assuming she is an EE. She is the only one not laying eggs yet. Will she ever lay? Will post a pic of her soon.

I think that she will lay, unless she is egg-bound.  Does she look uncomfortable?

No she seems happy and healthy. She isnt as red as my other girls. She has a pea comb and all white feathers. She free ranges all day and sleeps in the coop at night. I have 12 hens and everyone except her and my silkie are laying but i know silkies are late bloomers.

Can you post a pic of the bird?

 

Some don't start to lay until much older than the more common 18-24 weeks.

Especially this time of year, the low light can stall their maturity. 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
