I bought 3 EE pullets this spring from another BYCer (who has been MIA on here since June and hasn't answered my email to him): At the time, they were 13-14 weeks, which means they are approaching 28 weeks old, and still no eggs. Not a one. They are definitely all girls, no question, and they are eating plenty of good food, just like my other chickens which are laying daily. My other hens were deifferent breeds and began laying earlier, I have no experience with EEs, but he had said that they should start between 20 and 24 weeks. Is it the weather? Any suggestions? They do free-range during the day, but every few days in a while I keep them in late or all day if its storming, so I would know if they had begun to lay outside... Our other hens lay in the nest box, and I leave the eggs in longer than usual (in addition to the ever present golf-ball) so the newbies can see where they are supposed to lay.
