    My mid-April SLW (local hatchery) have been laying for awhile now.. perhaps not all of them, but a majority. Are they squatting yet? Any chance of a hidden nest?

    My GLWs seem to be late maturing too. The RIRs have been producing like crazy and at least one SLW and a couple of EEs are laying.

    One of my GLW's started at 24 weeks. Two others the same age - 27 weeks now - have not laid an egg yet but I think # 2 is getting close. The third one does not seem as mature. But it is amazing that they all (same breed, age, environment) are so different.....Once Louise started laying, she has been very productive...., 5 eggs per week for 3 weeks now, two of them large and double yolkers....

    My Golden Laced Wyandotte is 27 wks and not laying yet- she started doing the squat last week- but no eggs so far. Her "sister" the SLW has been laying since 21.5 wks and I have two EE's that are laying-and 2 that aren't- everyone is the same age. I guess they will lay when they're ready [​IMG]
