    HAHA! I know it cant be done, but we can aid them to push towards it!!

    I have a 10 month old white leghorn hen that hasnt laid yet... she is a rescue bird... currently in isolation for health screening before she meets my other birds.

    Not sure what else i can do besides try to make a stress free enviornment, give her oyster shell, good feed, water, and extra light... thats what we are working on at least...

    That's the best plan, give her a month or so to relax and recover and settle in, glad you are giving her a better home.

    Actually starting a thread about it often works....seriously!

    Where did you 'rescue' her from?
    Are you sure she's only 10 months?
    How long have you had her?
