Hello All, I am a first year chicken owner with a flock of 9 goofy 9 month old girls. 8 of my girls are laying and have been for a few months now. My Silver Laced Wyandotte however, Thelma, has never laid a single egg and I don't know why. Any ideas? She has finished her adolescent molt, she is of age, she is a she, Her comb an wattles are bright red...All signs are there but no eggs. She doesn't squat because she wont let us get near her for some reason (classic juvenile behavior). Again, everyone else is laying but her. They have 6 laying boxes, layer feed as well as 4+ hours/day of free range in the yard, and oyster shells and crushed eggshells readily available for them as they need it. Water, dust baths, rain protection, no predator threats, the works. They got it made. So why is my Thelma a "dud"? Insight on another thread (that I didn't realize was for another cause, oops) offered that her comb and wattles are indeed not fully developed - even at 9 months old. Is this breed a notoriously late bloomer? Here she is now, photo taken this afternoon.
