I know there is an old thread on this but I’m wondering about anyone who might have recent experience with it. I have a mixed flock of hens that are around 9 mos. All have been laying for several mos. except for Sunshine a Cream Legbar. She is at the bottom of the pecking order a lap chicken. They are all molting including sunshine and egg laying is way off . Sunshine has never layed. She never visits the laying boxes. Early on there were a few soft eggs on the roosting dropping board that I thot might have been hers but I’m not sure.yesterday while I was out sitting with my girls I noticed Sunshine is developing spurs . My other CLB Fanny has smaller ones so I thought maybe it’s a breed thing. Sunshine is a petit bird. Smaller then Fanny and all my other girls. Her comb and waddles are the same size as Fanny’ proportionally. So... if anyone has any info.on hermaphroditism I would be greatful to hear your experience. I don’t care that she doesn’t lay as she is a sweet, loving bird , my concerns are more that she be healthy and I don’t want her to start to crow. Thx!
