    Hi Guys
    sorry if you've all read this, but I can see that there's a thread, but I can't read it - just get an error, so I thought I'd start again to see if I could pick up responses this time.

    We have 4 hens, all bought Aug/Sept last year and ranging from 6-8 weeks to 12 weeks at the time. The 3 youngest (Cream Legbar, Silver Grey Dorking & Buff Sussex) are all now laying - Queenie was the last to start about 2 weeks ago, and she'd been quite sick over the Autumn/winter, so we were expecting her to be a little behind the curve.

    Winnie, the eldest, so probably about 6-8 months old, is still not laying. She looks fine - is the largest of the 4, but quite nervous - we got her at about 3-4 monts of age, so she wasn't handled a lot by us (others were) so I'm assuming that accounts for her nerves. She's also been a little distant form the others of late - could be because we've just give away our cockerel (live in the city and neighbours complaining), so she may be a little unsettled/taking over his role.

    The only potential health issue I can see is she makes funny whooping noises - very occasional, and no sign of any runny nose/inflammation/gaping that might suggest an infection.

    Any help, advise etc gratefully recieved

    Hey Karen,

    this is a problem with the forum at the moment meaning people can't read discussions started by i am not sure why i am really bothering to type this :P

    Have emailed my dad about it, so no doubt he'll have a look as soon as he's free (for everyone else that can read this thread!)
