    Hi Guys, Is it possible that my 9 month old broody pekin is still laying the odd egg? Or is it more likely my 7 month old has started to lay? Thanks

    Well, you need someone with more experience than I have but I've never heard of a broody continuing to lay eggs so I'm guessing that your younger pullet is now laying.
