    Interesting. I wonder what is up with that. Is she otherwise healthy?

    From what I can see, she looks fine. A short back is actually a desirable trait in UK type orpingtons.

    Quote:I can see why. She really is quite pretty with that petite little build.

    So it most likey won't interfere with egglaying? I wanted to know because I'm going to sell her sisters and I wanted to know she was ok so she could go with them.

    No, it shouldn't affect egg laying at all.
