    Hi everyone. I am an impatient first time chicken mom! I've had my girls for 18 weeks (since hatching). Still no eggs! They are Easter eggers and some mixed breed black hens. No squatting yet and they won't get in the nest boxes, either! Does she look close? So ready for eggs!

    I hatched a hen who started laying around 6 months regularly. Your girl looks very close. Keep watching their behavior and you'll notice when they are ready ...they do a little song ,mine did anyways :) and you'll notice them squat down .i hope you get eggs soon. We haven't bought eggs in over 7 months :) a really good feeling . Good luck . What a pretty hen ;)
