    This is a picture of my year old Australorp. She did not start laying until she was 9 months old. After that she been laying off and on. Nothing for probably a months or so.
    She eats and drink, but usually hangs out by herself. Her comb never really grew much.
    Her sister is doing great. Feeding 21% layer feed, oyster shell free choice, meal worms and BOSS now and then.
    They free range all day. 20170602_071101.jpg 20170602_071009.jpg

    If they free range check around for hidden nests.

    My husband just scraped the whole yard clean so we can put in a new pasture. No hidden nest.
    She is much smaller then her sister and her comb is small and shriveled .
    Kind of wondering if she just never matured properly.

    She might be an internal layer or just did not develop as you say. How old is she now?

    I would say Eggcessive is right on this situation.
    She may never outwardly lay again.
    Why do you feed 21% layer?
    Most hens only need 16% layer feed
    and also I would give them free choice oyster shell plus the grit.
    I would feed all the layers this to help body fitness.
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR CHICKENS WITH ANY HEALTH PROBLEMS
    Glenda Heywood
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR YOUR CHICKENS HEALTH.
    Glenda Heywood... ACV by Bragg's is sold by Amazon and at Walmart. (remember to get Bragg's as it has the "brown mother" in the bottom of the bottle.)

    My Daughter JoAnna Mertz feeds this wet mash probiotic several times a week to our 10 hens, 5 buff orpingtons 5 plymouth rocks, and they are eating it up in 30 minutes.

    To make the WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE HERE IT IS
    (A) TAKE 2 CUPS OF DRY CRUMBLES OR PELLETS,
    (B) 1 TSP OF DRY FLAX SEED MEAL (THAT IS FOR HUMANS)
    (C) PUT 4 CUPS OF MILK ANY KIND SOUR OR FRESH, 1 tbsp of dry flax seed meal,
    (D) AND 2 TBSP OF THE BRAGG;S ACV.
    (E) ALSO 1 /2 CUP OF UNFLAVORED YOUGART.
    (F) MIX GOOD. PUT IT IN GLASS CONTAINER, AND KEEP ON THE COUNTER OVER NIGHT.
    (G) IF IN THE MORNING YOU CAN ADD ANOTHER CUP OF MILK TO THE MIX TO MAKE IT SOLUBLE, like cookie dough, not soupy,

    (F) DO NOT MAKE IT SOUPY AS CHICKENS DO NOT LIKE IT SOUPY.
    (G) IF THE MIX IS OKAY IN THE MORNING AND NOT TOO DRY FEED IT IN THE GLASS CONTAINER SO ALL THE CHICKENS CAN GET TO IT.

    (H) I USED 2 VERY LARGE GLASS PIE PLATES. AND THEN CLEAN THE PIE PLATES BY BRING THEM BACK TO THE HOUSE.

    (I) FEED THIS AMOUNT TO EACH CHICKEN 3 tbsp of mix when wet, so make your recipe to fit all amount of chickens to be fed.
    (J) WHEN MIXING FOR 1 CHICKEN DO THISIE: take 3 tbsp of dry feed and add 6 tbsp of milk, 1/4 tsp of dry flax seed meal, 1 tbsp of yougart plain kind, 1 tsp ACV,

    (K) NOW IF THE CHICKEN IS SICK ADD THIS TO THE WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE
    (L) 1 Vit E capsule buy cutting end of capsule off and squeezing it into the wet mix.
    (M) 1-Vit B tablet crushed in table spoon and add a little water to disolve crushed tablet and then add to wet mash
    (N) 1- Selenium tablet crushed in tbsp and add little water to it and then add to wwet mash.
    (O) now mx good and feed sick chuicken evey day for 7 days
    (P) now feed it 5 times for second week.
    (P) then 2 times a week frlife.
    (Q) feed all healthy chickens 2 times a week for life WITH VITAMINS ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS.

    She is 14 months old. Here is picture of her sister. I feed a feed that is formulated for free range birds. They eat very little feed, so it is a little more concentrated. 20170605_182622.jpg
