    Hi,

    I have a mixed breed pullet (no waddle so possibly part americauna) who is pushing 8 months and still not laying eggs. Is that normal? My other hen that I got at the same time has been laying for a couple of months. I don't think they are actually related, but came from the same farm and were about the same size when I got them.

    Any insight or advice is welcome.

    Thank you!

    This time of year with diminishing day length it is perfectly normal. If you want eggs from her now add about 3 or 4 hours of light to the coop. She should kick in a week or 2 later.
