I found chick-chick about 1month ago...we were told she is a hen. I don't know what kind she is, I have a picture but don't know how to post it, sorry. I was wondering if anyone knows how long will it be before she starts laying eggs? I was thinking that she wasn't laying yet because she doesn't have a set home. We have her outside in a run attached to a small dog house during the day, and at night she sleeps in the laundry room inside a large dog carrier. She seems really happy with this set up and is very tame. She's gotten used to a routine and if I don't bring her in by a certain time every night she will let me know very loudly that she wants in. The chicken coop we are making her is almost ready, but I'm pretty sure I'll still be bringing her in at night.(We made a coop exactly like "Monica's Chicken House" seen on this site, we loved it!) Could she not be laying eggs because we move her back in at night? Also, other than her own food, the only scraps she will eat is bread. She begs, and will jump in the air for her bread every night.
