    Hi yes Im a new chicken owner. I have a Salmon Faveralle 10 months old who had laid before me getting her. After 2 weeks she laid for me one egg every other day but appears to have stopped again. I also have a 6mth old Wyandotte not laying; and a 5mth Buff Orpington not laying. Is this normal or should they all be laying now regularly.

    These breeds should start laying any time. They usually start sometime around 6 months of age, but can wait until 6 1/2 or even 7 months. I hope they start laying soon! :)

    I've never had Salmon Faverolles, but I had a good friend and neighbor who raised them, and they were very calm and gentle birds. I've had Wyandottes and Buff Orpingtons and like both breeds, especially BOs for their friendly, gentle temperament (my children, and now my granddaughter, made lap pets out to our BOs). As TwoCrows said, your two pullets should start laying soon. Good luck getting those eggs.
