I have a D'uccle who is around 30 weeks old (was hatched the first week of Aug) and hasn't started laying yet. Her comb and wattle are starting to get a little bigger and redder, but is this the norm for a D'uccle? All my other hens started laying between 18 and 24 weeks (my silki/cochin laid first and I heard they are late bloomers
