Some chickens just develop earlier than others. They are very much individuals, just like humans.

what a weird comb, I see what you mean maybe there is something wrong with the comb that it isn't developing right, you may have trouble with her when it gets hot again if her comb and watlle don't develope, I'm not an expert but I'm guessing thats the problem.

I know, crazy huh? She is red in the face, but doesn't really squat. I see her eating oyster shell and she pokes around in the coop, especially when the others are laying. She is so sweet though. Oh well...

My Hershey was 31 weeks old before she squatted and almost 32 weeks old before she started laying... BUT .. she lays a bigger egg and more frequently than my other hens .. so it was WORTH IT!!!

Oh, there's hope alright. My crevecoeur Blackie was almost 10 months old before she laid, then she became one of my better layers! I'm still waiting for my black silkie to lay... she's somewhere around 7 or 8 months old now.

Of my RIR all the same age it took one of my girls Stink eye almost 3 weeks after the others to start laying and her comb was tiny too. Then like overnight it grew and she laid. I thought oh well if she doesnt lay she doesnt.
