    Hello, I have 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Barred Rocks. They get along great. Only problem is that one of the EE's has not layed an egg,yet. We got them January 2015!! Can that be? They are spoiled, meaning super cool coop, great balanced feed, treats and the occational free time in the garden. We live in California, so sun should not be a problem.
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. She seems healthy and happy, just not laying.

    Guess it could be just one of the those things? Do you think that she may be laying somewhere out of sight?

    pictures?

    How do you know one is not laying? What are you getting for eggs and how often?

    Pics would help to make sure it is a EE and it could just be one of those birds, some don't start laying for a while.

    EE's don't always lay blue/green...they can lay pink brown white.

    this is why I was trying to get more info about how many eggs per day, and the colors, etc. If the OP is getting 6 eggs a day, one of the "Easter eggers" is laying brown eggs.
