Do I have lazy chickens?

    Hello, I have 4 chickens who are 23 weeks old. Two of them are Road Island Reds and two are Golden Sex Links. One of my goldens has been laying one egg every day for a month now. When in the world will my other chickens start laying? Will they likely lay one egg every day per chicken once they start?

    I got 6 Goldens in mid-March (now have 5) and just now I am getting 2 eggs a day. I only got 1/day for 2 weeks. So I'm only about a week ahead of you, and still 3 hens not laying yet. I think maybe there's some variation in when they mature, just like children. Don't stress, it will happen eventually!
