    I have a pullet and she is about 31 weeks old. She is a Hyline and is breed for egg laying. We got her and 6 others from a hatchery. All the rest have been laying for ages. Her comb is pale, she is a big hen. I felt her pelvic bones and they are 2 fingers apart. I understad that means that she has not layed yet but is close is this corect. They have been that far apart for a while now. Should she go in the pot ir is there hope for her. Thanks for any idea's and help.

    My Chantecler hens did not lay eggs until about 30 weeks. There is still hope for your bird.

    I'd wait a bit more, or at least until Sunday dinner.

    I sure hope so. I have a 40 week old Chantecler who is trying my patience.
