I have a 23 week old black copper Maran who has not laid an egg yet. Is this normal? I have a mixed flock of 6. Three, 3 year old hens, 2 18 weeks pullets (turken and brahma) also not laying.

As long as she appears healthy and is eating and acting normally this is perfectly normal. Marans can be 8 to 9 months before they start laying but the eggs will be worth it!😊

There you go! When they molt they can stop laying for a month or even longer. It is the season, mine just finished moulting as well. I thought she wasn’t laying still until I found five eggs hidden in the coop🤣
