Now that I have the soft shell egg problem worked out, the mean girls "it's high school in here" bullying issue resolved, I'm on to I've Got A Slacker! The only one of my four 5 1/2 month old chicks that is not laying is the Ameraucana. I have to admit that her eggs are the ones I'm dying to see. All 3 lay brown so I'm looking forward to that blue egg! But she shows no indication of laying. Is there an age she should start by? She's on the small side, but I don't know if this is common for her breed. Any advice?
