    Should I be concerned that a 7- month old bird is still not laying eggs ?

    Mine was 6+1/2 months old before laying.
    She should be laying soon. Is she squatting?

    She looks fully developed and ready, not sure about the squatting she's squirrelly and doesn't let me get that close. I have a friend who has one of her sisters from the same hatch that also hasn't laid yet

    I have 2 SLWs and they began laying at 28 and 30 weeks. Mine were late and looked ready for several weeks before laying. I'm sure she will be any day now. Good luck, waiting can be so frustrating!

    We have Wyandottes and they were late laying... part and partial to the breed I think :)

    She's been in and out of the nest box quite a bit today so I think she's finally about ready

    She finally laid 2-weeks ago and has been pretty consistent layer since
