    Ruthie, one of our barred rocks, hasn't laid at 28 weeks. She seems happy, healthy. She is large and loud. She tends to be a bit goopy under her vent. Might she have incompletely formed eggs? Is there such a thing? Might there be another reason she doesn't lay? Her broodmates, Flora and Greta, have been laying since 21 & 23 weeks, respectively.

    Are you SURE she isn't laying? Are the broodmates of the same breed?
