    Looks like only one pullet to me too! I agree with all the others, she isn't close enough yet. And don't worry, mine all laid sometime between 5 and 6 months (different breeds than yours though). Also, I don't know if you have a coop or anything, but if they are free range all the time, she may hide those eggs from you in the future...

    One pullet, and I'd still say she had about a month to go before you can expect eggs, sorry.

    This pullet is the same breed as yours, and is exactly 20 weeks old. She hasn't laid yet, but it should be a week or two until she does.

    I agree your pullet is not close to laying the comb is still very light colored and the bird looks quite immature
