Dorothy

post #1 of 4

My black Austrolorp (Dorothy) used to lay every other day but she hasn't lay any eggs in almost 10 months! She is a year old.

Very unusual but not unheard of. Do you have other chickens and are they laying?

Bummer, sounds like Dorothy is a Dud.

Has she ever laid?

how old is she?

Can happen, something genetic maybe, reproductive tract not formed right or hormonal chemicals out of whack.

I assume that after waiting 10 months to inquire, that she still appears healthy, eating/drinking/pooping/active?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
