My question is, how long do you wait before you consider your chicken barren? We have an Asian Blue chicken that is almost a year old and she still hasn't laid any eggs for us. She's "nested" since she was about 6 months old but never leaves an egg. Normally our chickens free range but we did keep her in the run for a week to make sure she wasn't hiding them and nothing. Since she's almost 1 yr old do we just give up on seeing any eggs from her?
