Chicken not developing or laying

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 4 chickens 2 RIR and 2 Buff Orpington. 3 of the chicks have started laying about a month ago. The one who hasn't started laying has small waddles and a small comb. The comb has turned somewhat dark red but not like the others. She started out kind of in charge, but now she isolates herself or vice versa.
Should we be concerned? Could she be a he? Upload pictures in a moment

here are some pictures. She also seems to be louder than the other chickens. She was born on 5/6 the same day as the other Buff Orpington who is laying

She is a pullet just slower at maturing.  She looks just about ready to start laying.
