    My EE is about 5 months old and she's much bigger than our other 6 month old EE hen who is laying now. When can I expect to see eggs. The other one started laying at about 4.5 months.

    In all respects, she seems healthy and happy.

    Do you have enough light for them?
    Good luck

    Are you adding some crushed oyster shells to her food? I do that with mine because my mom says it gives them the nutrients they need to form the egg shells. If you aren't already doing this, you may give it a try, if not just for the sake of having good eggs and healthy chickens. My Americauna was an early layer, she started at about 3 1/2 months, but another of my pullets is now about 6 1/2 months, and she hasn't started laying yet. Good Luck!
