I have a couple of questions for the chicken experts out there about egg laying and maturity in hens. What age do you think that the chickens below are and how much longer before they start to lay eggs? Also, what breed is the white chicken as I was told she was a full blooded Wyandotte but I can't figure out what kind. Also, the Dominequer chicken we call "Bess" and have had for almost three weeks now doesn't seem to be laying any eggs and she definitely seems mature enough to lay. I am wondering if I got took as a result of my chicken inexperience. I haven't seen her lay any eggs. Thanks for all the help guys. This is the white Wyandotte...Anybody know what type of Wyandotte it is? I am guessing this is the Blue Laced Wyandotte but I am not for sure? Also, how long before they start to lay? This Dominequer is supposed to be 7-8 months old and I don't think we are getting any eggs from her. Is there any reason for this (she is getting laying mash and oyster shells...Thanks for the help guys!
