Of my 19 hens, only one has just started laying. 14 were hatched around April 20th or so (I bought them on the 24th). My rooster from the same batch I bought (Cuckoo Marans) today started "breeding" a couple of the non-laying hens. Is this normal for a rooster to try to breed non-laying hens, they sqautted for him also! Hopefully this means a few more are getting close to laying.
