Will my white Leghorn ever lay?


May 18, 2020
I have a white Leghorn that is about 7 months old and her comb is still very small. We’ve never gotten an egg from her and I’m starting to wonder will she ever lay or is she just a very late bloomer?

Yes but it is still about 65-70 during the day and My cuckoo maran pullet (same age) is laying about 6 eggs a week still
Temps don't matter, it's the length of day.
Odd tho that the Marans laid before the leghorn.

Do you free range?
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, and then it's always there!
I live In California and it is dark around 5:30. I do not free range but my coop is about 35 feet long and 25 feetwide and there are only 6 chickens. I agree about the maran laying first! It is sunny most days still with a rainy day here an there
Her comb is starting to get bigger and redder so could that be a sign she might start laying soon? It’s still pretty small for 7 months but it’s a little bigger. Sorry I can’t get a good picture she’s not very nice

Mine didn’t start playing till eight months old. My Maran laid before any of my chickens. I live in Florida but none are laying, it’s just the time of the year.
