I have a mixed flock of 13 including 3 dorking hens. They are apparently happy and healthy (and the Dorkings are my friendliest birds, so I love that). They hatched March 2011 and 2 of the 3 never really laid regularly. In October, they went through a light molt and it's been about a month since they appeared to be done with molt and I have gotten ONE egg during that time I have one other hen who is not laying, but the other 8 are laying wonderfully. They are all dual purpose breeds. I'm just wondering if this light/inconsistant laying is usual with Dorkings? Or maybe they just mature late and will surprise me in the Spring?
