Does anyone know if Barnevelders are slow to develop? I have 10 hens and roo that I got from Ideal in Late Mar. They have yet to lay an egg that I know of. Everyone else has started to lay. What is with them? They are beautiful birds. The roo is goreous. They won't get on a roost yet. Most of my chickens will roost when they start to lay. The Barnes are still all over the floor in corners, and they are smaller than the others? Anyone know anything about them?
