    That's what I figured and she layed 1 egg about 3 days ago and hasn't layed since then, she just started laying recently and right now we do have a foot of snow on the ground. Is there any idea on u she's not laying more

    Point of lay pullets might only lay a few times then quit for a few weeks. Especially in cold weather. Of course others might start up and keep going for months straight, through the worst of storms! Young bird's ovary's are still working things out, so the rate of lay and the shape and size of the eggs themselves are highly variable.

    A point of lay pullet is a young female chicken who is about it start or has only just started laying. In most breeds point of lay will be 5-8 months of age.
