    My Barred rock girl has been squatting now for over 2 weeks probably more like 3 and still no egg. How long does it usually take?

    How old is your bird? They will usually lay at like 5-6 months or so. I've had 3 month old silkies squat but not pop out a single dang egg till they were 8 months old.

    Oh... rude silkies! That's just plain mean. :mad:

    My barred rock is 18 weeks old. could start laying anytime now, it's the squatting that's confusing to me. All my other girls started laying within 2 weeks of squatting.
