    I have four chickens, three have been laying for about a month. The fourth seems to have little interest in being domestic. I suppose she could be a roo, but she's been squatting and not trying to be dominant, and looks (shape wise) like her sisters, but hmm. Do some chickens just never start laying, or am I being too impatient? My Slacker is the darker brown EE, her sisters are another EE, a Barred Rock, and a sex linked Buff Orpington. Any tips? Does she need a trip to planned parenthood to watch the "video"? [​IMG]

    This is Ruby. If she turns out to be a roo we'll change her name to Hagrid. You know, Ruby is Hagrid.
