    i have a pullett who is about 7 months old and she still is keeping me waiting on the eggs.
    she(bonnie) is part barred rock and part silver lakenvelder (spelling?) and in great health as is her roo.
    i also have a nh red and a bo who lay every day even in the cold.
    is this normal? should i do anything more than just waite?
    i'm impatient
    why is she leaving me hangin? [​IMG]

    If you post a picture of her, her comb development (size and redness) might indicate if she is getting close.

    I have five pullets that are 28 weeks old. Three have started laying in the past few days. I was starting to lose patience but sure enough, as soon as I told my husband that I was going to start SQUEEZING eggs out of them they started laying.
