I have an Ameracauna named Betsy. She is about seven months old. She started laying beautiful blue eggs in August. She is acting totally normal, eating, foraging, activity level, etc. However, she hasn't laid an egg since around 10-24. I have looked around the yard to see if she has a secret spot and haven't found one. From what I have read if she was broody she would be exhibiting broody characteristics like hanging out in the nesting box, etc and she hasn't been doing anything like that. Can they be "silent" brooders? I know they don't lay eggs when they are molting, do they molt when they are so young? Would I know if she was molting, would there be feathers everywhere? There aren't, by the way. I live in Tucson, AZ and the weather is very warm still, in the 70's and 80's. The only unusual thing I have seen her do is several weeks ago she obviously needed to lay an egg and was very agitated, jumping in and out of the nesting boxes, pacing, loud squawking, generally making a big old fuss. She eventually settled down in the nesting box and laid an egg with great fanfare afterwards. I am a vet tech and can take an x-ray if it is recommended. Any suggestions?
