    Be patient. Although many sex links would be laying by that age, not all do. Just like all animals some hens/breeds mature more rapidly than others.

    I would not be alarmed at only 24 weeks. Yes, it's rare for a commercial type breed to not be laying at this time, but I'd say she'll probably come around.

    You can worry if by 32 weeks and nothing happen, for safety I did my planning for 32 weeks.
