When do Cochins usually start laying?

I have a girl, Luna, I was told was about 3 months (she thinks). She sits in the nesting box and she makes little nests in the hay bedding, but no eggs. I was told an indication that they were getting to lay was that their face would get more red. Also she seems very small, is it possible she could be a Bantam Cochin?

Here is her sitting on a "nest", Luna is next to Phoebe our Dark Brahma

Here is her with my 4 year old, Luna is super light and seems very small maybe 3 or 4 lbs.

Luna is beautiful! She's still a youngster, though. Cochins won't be ready to lay, usually, until around six months, and they won't be done growing until almost two years. They mature much slower than other breeds.
