    I have 5 pullets 2 RIR's, 2 EE's and 1 BO. I was hoping by now at least one of the gals would be laying but no such luck. I have a RIR that is 1 year old and is laying 5/6 per wk, but with the holidays the DW needs some eggs for baking. Looks like I'll have to get some eggs from the supermarket.[​IMG]:

    There may be some factors holding them back, such as a harsh winter. And some just take longer. . . I have an EE I waited 8 months until she laid an egg. . . I have another 8 month old Wheaten Marans who still hasn't given me anything. But I have patience; with her body and her siblings' egg color, the wait is worth it.
