    We have 2 blck stars, seven cinnamon queens, and one Wyandotte.(silver laced)
    Zebee(the Wyandotte) is probably about 21-23 weeks old. All of her sisters are laying
    but she hasn't started and she is at the age that they started. Is it possible for her to have a disorder that she never lays?

    It is possible but not probable. Some birds just mature more slowly than others - give her time.

    I agree with sourland. I have Brahma's, Rhode Island Reds, Americaunas, Barred Rocks, and Wyandottes. My Wyandottes seemed to be the last to start laying with my latest batch of chicks. I wouldn't worry unless you see other symptoms of something wrong.

    She is mini though but shes about as big as the others. That's why I thought she should be laying soon. But thanks! :D
