We have 5 hens, we purchased them in late June/early July when they were 2 weeks old. Our 2 Golden Comet hens started laying at least a month ago and lay 1 egg a day each.
We have one Speckled Sussex and 2 Araucanas which are not laying. They don't exhibit any signs of being roosters so we have no reason to believe that's the reason for no eggs. I've heard Araucanas take a long time to mature and lay eggs and one of ours is scissor-beak so I'm not expecting anything from her but I'm puzzled about the Speckled Sussex. She just started squatting for me periodically recently, the normal Araucana does this for me occasionally as well, but not eggs!
Is 6 - 9 months old a normal range? TIA
