Hello, I am new to this forum. I apologize if I am not doing this correctly or if I'm not posting in the right area.. I couldn't decide where to put this. I have 4 red sex-link ("red star") hens that I got as chicks about 6 months ago. From day 1, one of them has always been different. The others are all clearly red, while this one is more orange. The others all started laying right at 18 weeks of age... I am 99% sure this chicken has never laid an egg. I have gotten 3 soft, deformed eggs in the last two months that may have come from this chicken- I'm not sure which one they came from- but she has never laid a proper egg for sure. I know, chickens aren't machines and they all lay differently- I'm just concerned that her not laying means something could be wrong with her. Most interestingly, she never really developed any comb or wattles(?).. the other three all have large red ones, and hers is tiny and flesh colored, like an adolescent chicken I guess, but they're all the same age. She is the same size as the other girls. I don't think she's a rooster.. she does not crow and hasn't tried anything with the other chickens (although she is the least friendly of the group and is the only one who pecks at me). She does not have any symptoms of any kind of illness or injury.. I always just said she was a "late bloomer" but now I wonder if there is something actually wrong. I'm concerned that she may have a genetic issue as she really seems completely asexual, but I'm hoping maybe she really is just slow to develop, or that she has some kind of nutritional issue or something that I could treat.. I'd like to help her if I can. Is it possible for a chicken to take more than 3 months LONGER to mature than others of the same breed? Or could she be sick? Or is she just not normal? This is the "special" chicken: This is one of her sisters on the same day: Sorry the pictures are not great. In person they really look pretty different. I can take some more if that would help. Thanks for any advice or input!
