We have an Easter-egger and a Polish chicken, both 10 months (!) old, and we only get one medium, skinny white egg about every other day. We can't tell who is laying or not, as they both have 'private time' sitting in the one nesting box we have. Both are healthy. We've assumed that that our Polish chicken has been laying the white egg, but only because we haven't gotten a blue/green/pink one yet. EE's tend to have tiny combs anyway, so that's not much indication, and the Polish has quite large, reddish devil-horn-type combs hiding in her giant hairdo. Can chickens be BARREN, and not have any eggs??? We got them on 9/16/09, about 3 days old. We thought they'd lay late, as we got them as the weather cooled, but now it's really warm and sunny--are either of these birds late bloomers??
