    I have 3/7 22 week old pullets laying; 2 white rocks, and 1 red star. I have 2 barred rocks, and 2 buff orpingtons that are not laying yet, but they have been "squatting" for as long as the others. Do you think they will lay soon? Thanks![​IMG]

    Some squat for quite a while before they lay....My first one to lay seemed to squat for several weeks before she started laying...The other, same age, same breed did not take long from squatting to laying...I have one EE and one GLW that are about 29 or 30 weeks old and no eggs from them....The other GLW's started at 24 and 28 weeks
