So at the start of this year I decided I wanted to start raising a couple chickens. My family is all involved. We hoped for fresh eggs and a great life lesson for my kids. I started by getting 3 Delaware and one Buckeye hen ( I wanted all Delaware) when they were hatched. Unfortunately two of the Delawares turned out to be roosters which i am not allowed. The place where I got them offered me a Wyandotte then gave an additional California White. As luck would have it the Wyandotte which turned out to be the most popular among my kids and wife, it too turned out to be a roo. When I get a rooster, I take it to a feed store that always takes in the roo's. I did not want to do the Craigslist thing as I did not want the roos to end up in a cock fighting situation, this might make me weird but so be it. One day when I took the gorgeous Wyandotte in they traded it for an older Easter egg-er which someone dropped of the day before, She is a cool tan and brown and when i got her home I noticed she was injured. Serious wounds to her lower back near the tail feathers with feathers missing. I kept her separate from the other 3 and hoped for the best. I treated her wounds kept an eye on her and she is now completely healed and seems very happy. Now the question I have is if she is passed her laying years. No one knew her age and her nails were overgrown. She gets her nails clipped until they are back to normal. She is older for sure but not sure how many years. I have had her for about 2 months and nothing yet. I have included a couple pics. One of her back where her injuries were, the new feathers cover the old wound site and the other is of her as good as I could get. I am new to raising my own chickens but I have been around my uncles as a kid. I am learning this as I go. Out of the other chickens my Delaware started laying 5 days ago and so far is one egg per day. I know the Delawares mature faster and may be why she is the first to lay. the others haven't started yet but they were hatched on may first this year and should start soon. I and the family are excited about having brown, white and what ever color the Easter egg-er lays if she is not past her laying years. As long winded as I am here my question is if the injured americuana is not laying due to the injuries which are healed now, or if she is past her laying years? If she is, she is going to just be a pet chicken living out her years. I am hoping I could get a ray of hope she is still laying capable. I have seen the blue and green eggs from these chickens and would love for my kids to see it too. Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. I prefaced the photos by stating she is currently in a very large dog kennel at the moment until I can introduce her to the others.
