    I have a 6.5 month old BR with bent outer toes. Her brooder mates (BR and BO) have been laying eggs for a few weeks now but she's not squatting yet. Her comb has been quite red for weeks now. Do you think she's a non-layer?

    Please let me know what you think. I'm new to this!

    I doubt that there is a link between her crooked toes and non laying. My guess is that she is just maturing more slowly. There is a possibillity that she may not start laying unti the daylength increases to 12 or 14 hours of daylight.
