    I have 2 belgium bantams and 2 pekin bantams. They must be between 6-7 months by now and still haven't laid an egg? They make the clucking noise like I often hear my other hens make but still nothing? I would have thought they would be well and truly started by now.

    Belgian D'Uccles or Belgian D'Anvers? My own D'Anvers didn't lay until they were over 40 weeks old, however, they were not hatchery stock and sometimes, that makes a difference.

    I have a d'Anvers and a D'Uccles. They have only come into full egg production now they are a year old. But, they are good little layers now they have got into the swing of things.

    Your pekins are more likely to come into lay sooner than your Belgiums.

    They are both D Uccles.
