I just wanted to share my Sultan hen. She is about 11 months old and sweet as can be. I love the way her crest bounces when she walks. Hope you like her. Would love to see more Sultans And are a couple of questions for you. 1. I know that Sultans are not great layers, but she is 10 or 11 months old and has not laid the first egg. Is this breed something that needs to mate to lay? 2. I have a red Bantam that tries to 'Woo" her. If he is lucky, will she be able to lay his egg? I am just new at raising chickens and I am just wondering. Thanks for any help.
