    I have one girl, a Production Red, who began laying over a month ago i'd say she lays around 5/7 eggs a week. However, I have 5 other hens whom have yet to lay their first egg! Yes, they are all different breeds, but they are roughly the same age a week apart or so. I have a French Black Copper Maran, a Buff Orpington, an Americauna, Barneveldar, and a mix breed between an Americauna/leghorn. They are all 5-7 months old, most likely 6-months, when will the others begin to lay? They are all pretty big hens already.[​IMG]

    This can drive you nuts! The other pullets are just taking their time. Once they start, they should lay very regularly and their eggs should be well formed. When pullets start very early, they tend to have issues laying their eggs. So make sure they have food, water and calcium. Also, are their combs red? Are they squatting? If so, those eggs will be coming down the pipes really soon!
