    I have a few different breeds of chickens, all around the same age (some a week younger). Anyway, all my "bigger" chickens have been laying since about Aug. But I have not found any eggs from my little Banties. They are about 7 months old. Is it possible that they will not lay or maybe they just havent started yet?

    I know they lay small eggs but I look around the coop and the outside run very carefully and have not seen any.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What breed are your banties? Mine started laying at 18.5 weeks but we are at 27 weeks and a couple still have not laid yet.

    Too be honest, I'm not sure what kind they are. I just ended up with 10 chicks because the people who ordered them decided they didnt want them. I was told they are bearded, they look like they have beards, and booted cause of the feathers around their feet. All of them are grey.
