    Our 8 month old Americana has yet to lay an egg. She is different from our 5 other hens. Her legs are closer together by approximately an inch. Anybody else have this happen?

    I doubt she's barren. Do you have a picture of her?

    I've waited up to 11 months for a slow maturing pullet. Sometimes it just takes longer for their bodies to be ready to lay.
