Back in April, I purchased 5 day old chicks from local grain store. We got a Buff Brahma, a Leghorn, a Rhode Island Red and a Wyandotte. All of them are laying except the Buff Brahma. They all grew up together but the Brahma stays away from the others. I have seen the Rhode Island Red pick on her. Sometimes she hides behind the waterer. I don't know if she isn't laying because they are picking on her. Is there anything I can do?

Hens start laying by 6 months usually. If you wait a month she should start laying. Brahmas usually start laying later. Unlike barred rocks who start as early as 18 weeks.

Are her comb and waddles plump and bright red?
Are her pelvic bones 2-3 fingers apart?

My light brahmas started laying later than the others.
I don't think you need to worry.
