When I hatched my black orps, I only had two pullets (and three cockerels of course ) and one of the pullets was the "runt." Well the lady next door has a great granddaughter that is just in love with me and my chickens and they've had bad luck with their hatchery ones so I gave them my "runt." These chickens were hatched March 5th. Now I thought I was waiting forever since the one I kept only started laying at around 9 months old last month. But the other still hasn't started laying! I'm wondering if she's going for the one year mark. Looks like I gave away the right one But they so love her anyway so it's all good.
