We have four pullets all born in April and only one is laying (she started last month). We are wondering when the heck the other three are going to start? They are a 26 week old Buff Orpington, a 26 week old Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and a 23/24 week old Easter Egger, are those breeds late to mature? I think the BLRW looks so ready, she is red faced and big! My husband thinks she did a half-squat for him yesterday morning, but nothing since then. What do you all think?

Babette the 26 week old BLRW:

Stella the 26 week old BO:

Bella the 23/24 week old EE:

You come right here and sit down by me and commiserate. Two of my ladies (Wyandottes like yours) are a bit slow on the update, while the other one, a BO (rumored to be a late starter, but she obviously didn't hear the rumors) laid at 20 weeks.

I have heard that Buffs and EEs are late out of the gate. 'Dottes, however, I thought were pretty average. Mine seem to want to sponge off everyone else for a few more weeks :p Been squatting for a month with nothing to show. Your 'dotte looks like she'll be the first of yours to lay, just going from color.

Waiting is tough! Hang in there.

I have a 24-25 week SLW who is even redder in the face, and still no eggs.

My EE are apprx the same age, and look about the same as yours. No eggs. -sigh-
