    Still no eggs. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    She's a white leghorn too.

    What should I do? I don't have electricity in the coop. Will she still lay? Or does she have some sort of problem? [​IMG]

    I'll try to get a picture of her. She's very flighty.

    My Buff Orpington FINALLY started laying for me THIS WEEK! ...and the ripe "young" age of 30 weeks. I think it's because it's winter... and her sister, a Buff Brahma, also 30 weeks, hasn't started. So, I think it can happen.

    We feed them purina layer crumble. I know it's normal for some chickens to start alot later, but everything I've read said their leghorns started from 16-20 weeks. :(
