    I have a little flock of 6 chickens: 3 EE's, 1 RIR, 1 barred rock, and 1 Buff Orp. All of my chickens were born around Easter last year and none of them started laying until the days started getting longer a few weeks ago. Now they are all laying except for one EE. Is she ever going to lay? She doesn't squat, but she's my noisiest hen. Is there something I need to do to get her started? Or is she "defective." ;)

    Some just start later than others. I doubt that she's defective [​IMG] I'd give it a few more weeks before I'd consider her soup.
