    My other EE and 4 Barred Rocks have been laying for over a month. Am wondering if this girl will lay at all or just slow. I know she's still young but getting concerned. Of course if she doesn't then she doesn't. The world will keep spinning

    Is she getting adequate calcium and protein? Laying hens need feed with at least 14% of protein, preferably 16 or 18%.
    Why are you so sure that she isn't laying? Is her vent wide and moist, a pinkish color? Is her pubic bone wide? Maybe she is stressed or getting picked on by other chickens...
