    I have a 7+ month old Easter egger that is not laying yet. Do I have a problem child or is she just slow to get started? Her sister gives me about 3 a week.

    She's just a late bloomer. Chickens are individuals, just like we are. I didn't start at the same time as my 4 sisters either [​IMG]

    easter eggers tend to start laying late but they keep their production up for the rest of their life. give her another 2 weeks and i will b willing to bet you will get a egg...

    Quote:really? about keeping the production up? wow I'm glad I got my chicks then, I'm wondering if I have winter babies will they start laying younger then spring babies? I guess I'll find out and keep everyone posted on the age they lay if sooner then the 28 week mark.

    I have been told not to expect much till the days start to get longer. I am not gonna try to start them by putting a light for them I am afraid of fire.
