I have a hen (pullet?) that I ordered as a day old chick back in January (the only one that I kept out of that batch when I downsized my flock a couple months back). She has never laid an egg before... EVER! WHY?!?! I've never had a hen go so long without laying. I ordered her from Ideal. I just placed an order with them for some new chicks (Black Production, White Leghorn, and Gold Comet) since my current flock is not laying AT ALL! The other 4 hens are 2 1/2-3 years old, also from Ideal. They were all laying great for the last 2 years but just stopped. Guess because of the change in season. *forgot to mention, she is an Easter Egger.
