    My Quail Antwerp Belgian bantam D'Anver AKA Muffin has horrible feathers and she has never laid an egg in her life. She is at the bottom of the pecking order in a group of three bantams one is a rooster.

    If she is eating and drinking and acting normal she should be fine. And as for not laying, how do you know she is not a rooster?

    I have another chicken, marshmallow, she is in perfect condition, but no eggs. We brought her home in March. And I figured it was the stress of moving. She turned two in April, should I wait longer? Or is there something wrong with her?
