I had a white wyandotte hen that never layed an egg but also never crowed?
Thought I bought seven barren pullets till yesterday when I finally got my first egg!
Yes, but sadly she died. She was an internal layer.
You know, I have one I'm wondering about. She's a BO, bought her from MM in spring 08 I think....could have been 07 . Anyway, my hens free range and I've never kept track of who lays how often, I was just happy to get almost as many eggs as hens every day. It's egg math instead of chicken math Since I've been hanging out on the "what breed or gender" board more, I've looked harder at some of my birds. You know how point of lay pullets' combs get bigger and red? Her's isn't! It's small, that pale baby pink, small wattles. Her body is the same size as her hatchmates, and she's NOT a roo, she's hen shaped and feathered. Great, maybe I've been feeding a free-loader for two and a half years?
Yes, I have a year and 1/2 old white leghorn that has never laid an egg. She never really developed a comb either. But other than that she seems very healthy
Hmmmm...hormone imbalance, maybe?
mine was very small and had no large comb or wattles
I have one that is over 8 months old, no comb,no wattle and no egg. She is BSL. I have seen her go sit in the boxes while the others are laying. She seems super healthy and very friendly.
I have an EE pullet that is now over ten months old that has laid exactly two eggs. Very pretty pale blue, but only two of them. She's in a tractor with a bunch of brown egg layers and one other EE hen who is well established to lay muddy green eggs so I know when she lays one. She's got until late January to shape up then she's going to be culled with the other non-performers.
