Well I agree on all but the last as she is definitely laying eggs. She's just getting going since I got her and is having a few rough goes. The first egg she laid for me was a really long egg.
Then she had one that broke on the way out. I know because I saw the shell hanging out of her and the other chickens got to it before I could do anything. When I opened the nesting box it looked like an egg perfectly placed in a cold frying pan yolk unbroken somehow.
Then just today she was in and out of the coop and nesting box for over an hour and then she laid a sandpaper shelled egg.
It is possible she has laid some normal ones as I don't see who lays every egg but the ones that I know have been her have all been abnormal.
I am a little ashamed to admit it but I got these 8 hens from a kijiji ad. The people said they had a "hobbie farm" with about 50 chickens. The young Son took care of the chickens and my kids paid the son directly just $35 for 8 hens.
I was told they varied in age from 1-3yrs old. However they also clearly told me that the black hens were "Kentucky Reds". So who knows really. 😋
Thanks for the input on the others as well.
