    Is she free range where she could be hiding a nest? But I guess you would of had a clutch of chicks by now. She could potentially have a damaged ovary and can't lay eggs, that might explain why she looks a bit masculine.

    she was a free range but i had to put her with the goat in a fence in case she lays somewhere i could not find but nothing.......oh!! you think she looks a bit masculine!? i don't have any other to compare only photos from the internet....... so i might have to try buying a new clutch of eggs....... many thanks to all!!!
