    We can her Paris Hilton,,, most mature chicken out of 9 we have. Full comb ,,,and not a feather out of place. I have a strong feeling she is NOT one of the girls that are laying.
    They are all almost 16 weeks old. I am getting 3 eggs a day now.I have seen others in the boxes laying an egg and they do not have full combs.
    Will she come around and start laying???

    Here is Paris:

    And some of the other girls:

    16 wks is still pretty early to expect eggs, generally pullets start laying around 20 wks, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. It all depends on the chicken. She looks close, a few more weeks and I bet you'll start seeing eggs.

    ETA: I did say 'she', but you might want to post some pictures on the "Breed/Gender' Thread to make sure 'she' is not a 'he'.

    From what I can see of the others it might be one of them that is not laying, they don't look as mature as Paris. Can you post pics of your other girls?
