I'm wondering why one bird out of 8 won't lay.
She is a Buff Bantam Brahma; super cute.
I currently have 8 birds (down from 9 a few months ago). She was originally in a flock of 3 and came to us when her family had to move. They integrated well with my 6 girls, but I think she might be lowest in the pecking order. She isn't picked on too much—the other two who are a little more assertive get picked at by the others a bit more, but nothing terrible.
Her previous family said she hardly, if ever, laid, as well. So I knew what I was getting.
This is the 3rd laying season that she's been with me, and I think she's laid one egg in all that time.
My girls are relatively free-range (plenty of open space—600+ sq ft—but not the run of the whole yard). They are in a sunny-but-treed part of the yard. We are in NM at high elevation (7500 ft), so plenty of sun and thin air. They have plenty of organic layer grain, forage, and water (even the occasional mouse). I give their shells back to them and supplement with oyster shell on occasion for calcium.
