Hi from KY!
Every breed and every chicken have their own timing. Check out the threads in chicken behaviours and you will see a bunch of info about this!
Welcome to BYC. When she is ready she will start to lay - onset of egg laying varies from breed to breed and from individual to individual within breeds. Be patient.
Welcome from Missouri!
New layers often take a few days between eggs at first. She's an animal, not a machine. She'll also probably at some point lay weird shaped eggs, maybe an egg with no shell, eggs with ridges/bumps/lumps, things like that. They're all normal and part of a new layer's system learning how to produce eggs regularly.
