Hi there I am fairly new to this but so far all has been well (sort of). We have 5 gorgeous girls, all 8 about months old. We have 2 Isa Browns, 2 Pekin bantams and one Wyandotte. The Wyandotte was originally highest in the pecking order by sheer size (thought she was part giraffe for a while there). She isn't now though and although we see no actual pecking going on she has had a big bare patch on her chest for ages. All nice and clean thank goodness, not open but it is always there. Secondly the other 4 are laying every day and she is not laying at all. She has only the beginnings of a comb which is probably a clue but is she okay? Is the chest thing connected to the lack of laying / comb? No mites, she seems in very good health and happy, maybe a bit left out as the others tend to pair off. We are in Melbourne so we are just out of winter. Thanks in anticipation!
