    Ive got seven girls (variety of breeds) all hatched in early Feb. They all appear happy and healthy but one of them still isn't producing! They get good free range time, eat plenty of protein and are in a nice coop with plenty of airflow for Texas heat. Should I be concerned? I'm getting plenty of eggs from her sisters...but I really want another colored egg!

    sure its not a rooster? maybe she has some health issues, try leaving fake eggs and golf balls in the the nest. Maybe she has been laying eggs and you didnt know it !

    Another late laying EE. Since they others are laying you are doing what you should be, so its all on her. If she is acting like shes alright, al you can do is watch her with concern. One possible thing is she may be laying an egg simular to what some one else is laying.

    I'm in the same situation but with a 9.5 month; a wheaten maran who hasn't layed a single egg! Frustrating, isn't it [​IMG] I think maybe she'll wait for spring; maybe that's what yours is doing?

    Do you have any pictures of her? Is she squatting/does she have a red comb?
