    I have a BLRW hen that hatched in may and is not laying. I'm looking for a home for her or I would like to trade her for a BR, BO, or a light colored EE. Here are some photos of her.

    Quote:Wyndottes are a much more slow maturing breed then most other layers. The reduced daylight this time of year can also contribute to it.

    Your hen looks beautiful. I have Xmas lights on in my pens so my hens can keep laying and plenty of food...lol

    I have BLRWs and some of my pullets the same age are just now starting to lay. They do mature more slowly and the shorter days this time of year don't help. From the looks of her comb I'd say she's going to start soon.
