I have three golden comets. Two of which are laying just fine. I have yet to see the third one lay. She is broody though. Will go take care of the other hens eggs. Also crouches down when you approach her. But I watched them today and Big red (the head of the roost) went in and laid an egg... Then my hen that has half of her beak broken went in and laid an egg... an the other one went in and check on them... But she didnt lay. I normally get 1-2 eggs a day. And I think they are only coming from the two that laid today. I dont know their ages. (bought them from a guy last fall) he told me they were 18 months old. But he had about a hundred chickens and walked in the coop and grabbed three... And I went to grab one and he said no you dont want her she is old. So obviously he had chickens of all ages. So I dont know if the hen that isnt laying is an older hen. Is there any way you can age a chicken?
