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.

Could be any day now or a few weeks.
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!
