Hello world. I have been loving reading this site since I first got chickens this July. I finally got around to making an account, because I can't always locate answers for my questions. So, here's what I'm wondering about. I have about a dozen silkies, two flocks raised separately then integrated last month. Two of my first flock turned out to be roos, and they have taken a liking to one of the "girls" I bought in my second flock (supposedly all female but still no eggs). My question, sorry if it is a silly one, is: The two roosters seem to know this chicken is a hen, is it unusual though for roosters to mate with a hen before she starts laying? She's been a little lethargic the past few days and has very slightly droopy wings. Is it possible that she's ready to lay eggs but something is wrong? Perhaps the symptoms are just being tired from being the most popular girl in the coop? Thanks for any and all help!
