    We have a Porcelain D'uccle Bantam that is about 25 weeks old and she still hasn't laid an egg yet.

    I can't find anything online that tells the typical age for their first egg, and also about how many per year. Or maybe Bantams don't lay eggs????

    Chickens generally start to lay by 24 weeks. But most of them don't have a calendar. If they are healthy in appearance, have plenty of food and fresh water, patience will be your best move.
