    I have an Americauna that was hatched in June 2008. She has never laid an egg and now my other two chickens have begun their laying cycles again and Cinderella has still not laid. Is she a dud? She is not related to or are the same breeds of the step sisters.

    Has her comb and wattles redden? She may just be a late bloomer.

    We are only now beginning to gain more daylight hours. That "triggers" egg production.

    Don't give up on her until we actually get a little closer to Spring and sunny, warm weather.

    ok I thought they laid after a few months but the others stopped around october. I think she is going in the nesting box and playing around with the shavings.
