    I have 3 white leghorn pullets, hatched New year's Day and two of them began to lay at 22 weeks, while the third took another two weeks, because she was one of a few chickens left behind when I moved the flock....... They were harder to catch. I think the trauma of being chased slowed her down. After I got her to the new property, she took a bit to settle down and lay. Everybody in the flock had a bit of a hitch in their get-along as well, from the relocation.

    But don't worry, they will lay. When they're ready to do so.

    Patience. There are very few barren chickens.
