I know I know! All girls lay at their own pace. But I'd like to know just at what point that if a hen isn't laying by then she could be considered a dud. I have a 9 month old girl who hasn't ever laid an egg. All of her sisters are laying or have laid an egg. She is an EE so I know they take longer. She has had a nice red comb for months now but hasn't squatted at all that I have seen. She doesn't act like she is sick and I've looked her over and she looks fine. I planned on giving her until spring figuring it might be the chillier weather that is putting her off but I don't want to keep an unproductive chicken around either. Thoughts?
