No you are not impatient. We've got a BUff Orp hatched feb 14th not laying yet. Her sisters have all started 6 weeks ago. I keep hoping....someday. Her comb is not even very red yet and no squatting or anything.
I also have an EE that is not laying even though her sister has been laying for quite a while, now. Thanks for sharing! Maybe I will continue to wait for her. She is a beautiful bird. She was kind of larger than the other chicks. Maybe she is a throw back to a breed in her heritage that is slower maturing.
I have a pair of sister EEs that will be 7 months in a few days. Just a bit ago they started squatting (like a week) and now one of them does it all the time for us... I'm hoping soon... They are so very sweet and beautiful! I am looking forward to pretty eggs. It seems EEs tend to have more late bloomers than other breeds. Hang in there. I have also been told that when they are coming of age this late in the year they may just wait until spring to lay...
I hope that isn't the case. Come on Martha and Georgia, be good girls and give me your eggs! LOL
