    Around two weeks ago, I bought my self a pre-loved hen because it was cheap and i wanted to see what would happen if I put her with my other chickens.

    She has a red cob (not too red), a tiny bit of moulted area around the cob and she's quite aggressive and eats moderately.


    Can she still lay eggs?


    Its winter now in Australia ummmm, and she has no friends besides the duck.


    We dont have laying mash but we do have dried leaves and bark, I felt under her legs for eggs but just tenderness and the coop is quite big. Shes only put with the duck.


    Can she still lay?

    I will try put pics.
