So I bought several chicks from a hatchery in February of 2020. All of them have laid eggs (and stopped due to the shorter days.) Out of those chickens I had 2 welsummers, one had been laying eggs since at least September and the other STILL has yet to lay she is most definitely a hen. I check my yard regularly, EVERYWHERE. She is literally just not laying. I’ve heard of some hens that never end up laying. My other welsummer just passed away 2 days ago and I don’t want to give up hope on those beautiful brown speckled eggs. What are the odds that an 11 month old will start laying eggs by this spring?
