black Australorp hens

May 30, 2013
I have 3 hens, all are the same age, 1 hen laid little pullett eggs for about a month, now she has gone broody and we have her setting on quail eggs but the other two still have not started laying. Is it possible they will finally start laying? i know they are over 6 months old.
Silkies, for example, have been known to wait over a year. Mine start at usually around 8 months. On the flip side, I've had leghorns lay as early as 18 weeks. It just depends on how fast the individual bird matures.
