    I'm new to this whole chicken thing. My only only hen out of my first batch is 6 mos old and has yet to produce any eggs. How long before she will lay? She is a Columbian Rock.

    She should start any day! Rocks usually start around 20-25 weeks. Make sure the nests are built and that she has food, water and calcium.

    Henrietta finially started laying about 3 weeks ago. At first her eggs were small but now they are large in size and I get them pretty regular.
