Hen not laying... is something wrong with her?

I got my racing pigeons in the beginning of january and they have all been paired up since about january 11th. All of the pairs are either sitting on eggs right now or raising babies. Except for one pair the hen has not laid any eggs yet. Is something wrong with her? What can I do? Thanks.

Are you sure that she is a hen? She could be a He. All of my breeders that were paired on Jan. 13 have already had thier first round weaned. You may want to look back over your feed and make sure they are getting enough protien and you can feed some pellets. Make sure they are getting grit all the time along with food 24/7.

are they at least nesting or are they avoiding the nest all together ? I have a couple hens that dont lay eggs at all but they do sit in the nest an will take on babys if i need them to as fosters ..

I am sure its a hen. I think they are getting enough protien because none of my other pigeons are having this problem and they have grit/oyster shells available all the time. yes they are nesting and they have built a nest with the nesting material i have given them and she sits in the nest sometimes too. but still no eggs and the pair has been doing this for almost 2 months now.
