I have 2 barred rock, 2 rhode island reds and 2 ameraucanas that are 8 months old. The barred rocks and rhode island hens started laying at around 21 weeks. One of our ameraucanas had her first egg at 20 weeks, but she couldn't pass it. We made her a private hen house, made her super comfortable but Everytime she would squat, the egg would get stuck in her vent and she would make a terrible noise due to the pain. Ended up doing an episiotomy on the poor thing to get the egg out and she was a happy lady after that! That is the only egg she has ever produced and the other ameraucana hasn't produced any. Is this normal for this breed? How much longer should i give these freeloaders before turning them into chicken soup?
