Are Easter Eggers normally slow to mature and start laying? I got 6 chicks from a local feed store last March, 3 RIR and 3 EE. The RIR's have been laying for months now. The EE's, one died within 24hrs another one was a roo. So I just have one EE left from the 3 and as far as we can tell she still is not laying. We obviously have not found any blue or green eggs and we have never seen her in any of the nest boxes. So either she is laying but laying brown and doing it early before we can see her in there or she is still not laying. Is this something that happens occasionally with EE's ? I realize I have a very small sample size but so far I'm not much of a fan of EE's given my results. I realize that young chicks die and sexing is not a perfect science but man that one EE left better start to do something soon.
