We have 8 , 21 week old New Hampshire's and two of them started laying about two weeks ago. I am now getting a egg nearly every day from each of them and they are doing it on a schedule and in the nesting boxes (after a little coaxing). Yay for Bertha and Scarlet! The rest of them haven't done a thing, though. Bertha and Scarlet look very different from the non-layers, too. They are larger, have large combs and big, moist vents. The others barely have combs at all and have very puckered vents. Will they ever catch up? Is it normal for some hens to reach laying readiness faster than others? Any input would be great. Thanks!
