    I can't seem to find the answer any where. Mine is 25 weeks old and still no egg.

    I don't know anything about that breed. You say she is 25 weeks old, what are you feeding her? Has she lost a lot of feathers lately? Give her a treat of oatmeal. I read somewhere that it helps to induce egg laying. If she isn't
    or hasn't molted her feathers she should start laying at anytime.

    I started her on layer feed a couple weeks ago. She hasn't lost any feathers at all yet. She is super red in the face but no squatting. That's why I was wondering what the average was for her breed to see if it will happen any time soon.She's been red for over a month now.
