i have a rio grande hen that hatched last year. it was either the last couple days of june or the first day or two of july. she hasnt started laying yet and im wondering if she will lay this year? i have another hen(narragansett) that hatched the same time she did and she is laying but im thinking since she is a wild she is maturing slower. she is still awfully small. but i caught my tom doing his deed probably close to 2 months ago. so i figured it would be soon. she will get on the nest occasionally and just sit there like she is going to lay one but i think she is just teasing me... any advice?
