    We have a black EE pullet, named Raven, who we aren't quite sure on the age...we got her at about 4-6 months in October, so she will be about a year old around September. So right now she's about 7+ months. [​IMG]

    She has been living in our house with our small bantam Cochin, Pumpkin, because the rooster was being rough with them. Yes, I know that they are way too old to still be living in the house. [​IMG] They both live in a plastic tub/box with pine shavings, food, water, treats...

    but anyway, Raven hasn't started laying a single egg yet! [​IMG] And it seems kinda late for her to not be laying yet. [​IMG]

    Any suggestions/advice?
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Easter Eggers are notorious for being late layers. Give her time, it will happen.
