We have four hens that we raised from week old chicks back in March. Three of them have been laying since late summer. The one who still hasn't is named Toaster (my daughter is four and names all critters.) Toaster was sold to us as an Ameraucana, although now I realize she is actually an EE. She still has not laid an egg. Will she wait until spring to lay an egg now? We are in the Blue Ridge Mountains and it is already quite cool here. Also, what is the likelihood that she will actually be a blue egg layer? We told my daughter she would (because the feed store said she would) and my little girl can't wait for that blue egg to appear! Will she be disappointed when the egg finally appears? Toaster is the lowest hen on the pecking order, and I've wondered if maybe that is why she doesn't lay. We are still getting an egg a day like clockwork from the other three girls. Here is her picture (along with our delightful serama roo, Elvis).
