    [​IMG] I have 3 hens Velma Billie and Roxy (chicago). I have had them for 1 month and they are a delight. I have one brown egg and one green egg every day . But Roxy has not matured yet and is still not laying . She is eating well but she is losing some feathers on a daily basis. Could she be an early moulter she is POL not layed egg yet? She has recently been de- liced so not problem . Help please should I just let her get on with it ?[​IMG]
