Hi all. We started a flock of 5 from chicks back in February. 2 turned out to be roosters and were rehomed and we lost one pullet to what the vet said was mist likely a neurological problem. We are down to 2, an Easter Egger who has been laying well since she was 23 weeks and a Lavender Orpington who hasn’t laid at all (they are now 27 weeks). The Orpington doesn’t even have well developed wattles or comb yet. Is this normal for a bird her age? In all other respects she seems normal. We just received 4 new chicks that we will be integrating in slowly.
