    WELL SHE MAY JUST NOT HAVE ENOUGH NUTRIENTS IN HER BLOOD TO START LAYING EGGS. WHEN MOST MY HENS ARE HATCH A BATCH OF CHICKS SHE DOESNT START LAYING FOR ABOUT 4-5 WEEKS AFTER THE CHICKS ARE HATCHED.

    AND WITH THE FEATHER THING I DONT KNOW I WOULD HAVE TO SEE A PICTURE OF HER TO TELL YOU.

    Lost ~ I'd go for game bird chow, not scratch, to get essential nutrients in her. Scratch is just the equivalent of chicken candy. ;-)
