Hi! I'm BeasleyMommy, a frequent visitor, but new member. I'm a married mommy of four, and a Catholic homeschooler from Georgia. We have a dog, gerbils, fish, and, of course, chickens. We have 3 hens (no roos allowed) and 3 chicks. The hens are 1 Buff Orpington and 2 Ameracaunas (Easter Eggers?) They are about 7 1/2 months old and two have been laying almost daily for almost a month. The other Americauna has not yet, ad is smaller than the others, even though they are the same age. I feed them layer feed, oyster shells, assorted leftovers, and they free range in the yard. Is she a late bloomer or is there a problem? Her comb is smaller and less red, also, if that gives any more info. Thanks for any advice!
