    If you are concerned that your pullet isn't laying, you have to consider the time of year. All of mine have pretty much stopped laying for the year. When the days get shorter, they will stop laying. And sometimes if they hadn't started before the short days kicked in, they won't lay until sometime this winter. There is the rare chance there is something else going on with her, but that has been my experience. I have had some that were 8 months old before getting an egg and others 4 months. It depends on the chicken as an individual and weather and daylight and stress levels and so on and so forth. You get my meaning, right?
