    I can aggonize and sympathize with you! [​IMG] We have 5 Speckled Sussex and one Partridge Rock that are over 6 months old. Out of all of them, at best, we get 1 egg every other week! I don't believe the Patridge Rock has ever laid one. The others, well...it's hard to tell I guess. We got one little egg the other day. But it had been about two weeks since the last one. I have to buy store bought eggs today as well! [​IMG]

    The average for most production chickens is the 6 month mark.
    Birds that are from good breeder stock that are known to develope slower can take up to 8 months or longer before they lay their first egg.

    Sign that the girls are getting close is their combs n wattles turn bright red like a rooster, they will start squatting, practicing the egg song, and showing more interest in checking out the nest boxes.

    I still have three from a flock of nine who aren't laying. They were 28 weeks yesterday, making them about 6 1/2 months old. But I am getting a good amount of eggs from my other girls, so the waiting game isn't as torturous as it was about a month ago.

    I have three show type BR pullets, two breeder quality Buff Orp pullets and three mille fleur D'Anver pullets who are 27 weeks and not laying. Patience, grasshopper.

    I'm sick of everyone asking me when I am going to have eggs more than I am of not actually having eggs from our girls yet. Some people, particularly a few co-workers, are driving me NUTS!!! I've told them since the day we got the chicks that there isn't even going to be a chance for eggs until mid/late-November or early December, and yet the same people ask about once a week or every other week if we got any eggs yet.
