I guess it's a winter time thing... but blue ameracauna STILL hasn't laid an egg at 40 weeks. Olive egger laid at 23 weeks. All the others are laying daily. What the heck? Is this normal? Will I have to wait until spring?
40 weeks old - no egg yet

I have read that Aracauna's are NOT good winter layers at all. Maybe this is the problem? You're absolutely certain you have a female too?
But this one has NEVER layed? The other possibility is hiding eggs somewhere. Do they free range at all? When did she start squatting for you?
Never has laid, not one single egg. It's easy to tell, as I only have 5 and I know their egg colors. The run is too small to really hide, and I check everywhere. They are only in a mobile tractor when outside of the run and I check that as well. She has been squatting for several months. I can only think that she matured late, and right as days became short--they don't have artificial light. Just wondering if this is normal, to have never laid for so long! It will probably be worth the wait......!
