Hi there. Is it normal for 8 1/2 month old faverolles to not be laying yet? I have two from a straight run of a total of 7. The other four hens (not faverolles) Started laying at about six months but these two or not yet. Is that normal? By the way, the seventh is a rooster :). Thank you!

The heavier the bird, the longer it takes for them to lay.
With young birds in their first year when they gotta lay an egg they will. I get winter eggs in their first year.

I have black copper Marans that are 30 weeks and only 1 out of 5 has started laying and she started over a month ago. Days are getting much short here in Indiana though.
