pullets not yet laying!
#16
They are girls aren't they! Seriously though, yes they will lay, some are just slower. When I had my first two I thought they would never lay and once they did they didn't stop.
If they can be taught to hate, they can be taught to love.

I am concerned that the others will not start to lay. One has been laying for about 2 months now and two others started a few weeks ago but that's it. They are all the same age so would have thought that they would now all be in lay! Do some chickens just not lay at all?

Only cockerels.



All birds are different but yours will lay at some point.

My Shetlands POL is about 10 months old........................Yes, honestly.
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

Hi. You have my sympathy, it is so hard to keep the faith when they stubbonly refuse to lay for ages. I have had them come into lay at anything from 21 weeks to 32/33 weeks. Then sometimes decide to only lay on high days and holidays but, as yours are hybrids I am sure you will eventually have all of them laying most days.
Today is the First Day of the rest of our lives.

Could you explain that to my bantam wyandotte, I got her over a year ago (Feb 2011) supposedly at about POL, has had nice red comb and yellow legs for ages (couple of months after I got her) - no sign of an egg! I think she's barren, but she's very decorative <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
Never forget that life is a finite resource.

Experience is something you gain just after you needed it most.
