...for my one hen. I have five chickens, 4 Dominiques and 1 Black Australorp. They are all 29 weeks today.( They were all hatched on June 29th). On December 24, 1 of my Dominiques layed her first egg. She was the last one I thought to lay first as her wattles and combs were not as big or red as the others, BUT she was definiately a squatter. Since then, just about every day I get an egg from her. Now with the other 4- their wattles and combs are devloped and red but they are not squatting. I am thinking they just can't be bothered with egg laying. I am baffled.
