I have a BC Marans whom I think should be laying by now, but isn't. She is at least 6 1/2 months old, and I have an Americauna who is 1 1/2 months max. older than my Marans, but the Americauna has been laying every day (or every other day) for 3 months. I have checked all of the Marans' favorite places in the yard, but I haven't found any eggs that she might be laying. She is eating, pooping, and very healthy, and she and all the others have ground oyster shells next to the laying food, and I know she's been eating them. She doesn't have an egg stuck (I checked! ), so I'm wondering why she isn't laying. Any answers? Thanks!
