At the end of March I got RIR and a Black Sex-Link. The RIR laid almost right away but not the other one. After about a month and a half she gave us two little eggs and one VERY little egg and then quite. About a month later she was quite miserable for a couple of days with a messy bum and a couple of no-shell eggs and then quit again. Earlier this month she gave us another small egg and I thought we were on our way but....no ! Every once in a while she will get on the nest and then come out singing the egg song but there is either nothing or she has been on one of the others eggs. It's very frustrating to me! The last couple of days she has been "nesting" on the cushion of my lawnchair and her friend is on the other one - the only thing is that her friend laid her egg there yesterday! They are all very hot (Alabama). I wonder if her comb is getting paler - but I may be just paranoid about that. They get all the "right stuff" to eat - like all the spoiled chickens that I read about on here. I wonder if she is going to lay at all or is she going to be just "eye candy"!!! Comments would be appreciated.
