    I have had this strattle leg hen and am wondering if she'll ever lay eggs she's a bit smaller than the other barred rocks and I noticed the barred rocks are a smaller breed anyway she cant jump very high but she can jump down from things great she used to be picked on but now she doesn't get picked on that much anymore and she can run and she's as hard to catch as any other hen so I just wondered if you guys thought she will ever lay eggs

    If she just has a crooked leg that should not stop her from laying eggs if she is otherwise healthy. If the leg problem is somehow related to a pelvis deformity, that may be of concern with being able to lay eggs.
