    My little Americana is pretty wacky. First of all she's quite afraid of people and whenever I get near her she will run into the nearest fence in an attempt to escape while all the other chickens, even our rooster, run right up to me. It's been over 6 months and she doesn't lay eggs. We've looked everywhere. Is quite sad actually. She'll go in and lay on the other chicken's egg once they've left. Do some chickens never lay eggs?

    Never heard of a hen never laying eggs, unless they're laying internally which is bad but does have signs to go with that. Some just take their good ol time to get there. If she's feeling stressed she won't lay, they also can be very very sneaky and lay in the oddest places.
