    [​IMG]. Just one of my 4 lovely ladies. I'm Marcie from Salt Lake City Utah. I have one Leg Horn, one RIR and 2 Delaware. They are all about a year old for some reason the Leg Horn is the only one that has ever laid eggs. She is giving me one a day. I can't figure out the issue with the other 3. Glad to have found this site v

    Hi Marcie and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'm no expert, but the bird in your photo looks younger than 1 year old [​IMG]. Hopefully other greeters will be able to help you out with your non-layers. If not, then you can post your question on the "Chicken behaviours and egg laying" forum.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    All the best

    Are you certain the others are pullets? You can post photos(and age) at "what breed or gender is this."

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    I agree with CTKen... that bird doesn't look more than 14 or 16 weeks of age.
