So I'm wondering. I have 6 chickens 1 hen 5 pullets. We aren't sure of the hens age but she was laying when we got her. The other 5 I got together 3 being 5-6 months and 2 5-7weeks when we got them. One started laying with in 2 weeks of bringing them home another about a month later. Fast forward to today the 3 older pullets are roughly 8-9 months old and the 2 younger ate roughly 20 weeks all mixed breed. Both of the youngest 2 pullets have started laying in the past 2 weeks. But one of the older pullets is mostly black asrtaloph and has not laid an egg yet (at least not one I can confirm) all of the 5 are mixed breed at best except the astraloph how seems at least mostly true to breed. So one thing is (and I have read astralophs can take longer) I read some where that there can be a huge personality change for some pullets one they start laying. And I've seen this worth most of them. They go from hiding at the sight of me to suddenly I can almost walk up to each one before they skitter off. Except black betty who up until 2 days ago strictly stayed hiding in the background under the bamboo and away from most of the other girls. She wouldn't even come out of the run if someone was by the gate. So 2 days ago suddenly she is constantly walking the run, running up to the gate when we visit the girls and even letting me walk with in a few feet of her before wandering away. Thing is I have a egg I'm not sure belongs to any of my others and I'm thinking it might be black betty's. I'm hoping I'll get confirmation today with 3 extra large eggs (I have 2 that lay large/extra large and 3 lay small/medium right now) But is additude (personality) a good predictor of a possible or close to laying hen?
