    Compare her comb and waddle size and color with pictures of adults of the same breed.

    time of year and horrible weather don't help, where did you get the hen from. I have 2 easter eggers over a year old now that have never laid. I hatched them myself. I got them from a lady who breeds and lets all the roosters and hen run around with each other. I think mine are inbred. I don't know much about legbar's, are they suposed to be good layers?

    Quote:Snap! I put it down to the time of year and believe you may see some egg action in the next few weeks now the days are getting longer. My girl has a really large red comb and has had for a while!

    Having said that, I read somewhere that legbars don't lay until the enter their 2nd year. Not sure how true that is because I have seen others posting their legbars have laid before a year old [​IMG]

    Stick with her Johnn, we'll have a race to see if your legbar lays before mine or vice versa [​IMG]

    Bet I love it more! [​IMG] Now, you are going to have to post the moment you get one and a pic too! I think my CLB is a week, maybe two weeks older than your CLB, so I just know you are going to have your own very soon!
