Ancona Chicken 31 wks old, has never laid but broods and sings


In the Brooder
Dec 15, 2020
My Ancona girl, Tiny, has never laid. She’s 31 weeks old and all of her sisters lay. She gets in the box almost daily, lays there for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, then sings the egg laying song.

We live in the PNW so days are short, rainy, and fairly dark. Is she not laying because of this and will start in the Spring? Or should I be worried she’s an internal layer? She naturally has a bit of a penguin stance because of her breed. There are no other signs of internal laying.

Thank you for your input!
