She's probably not inferior.
She came from a cutout in September, we were in a drought, and it was the dearth. So they never had time to get built up. She was a good layer even in the fall so I'd like to keep her and the potential feral genetics she has.
I see. Good luck with her, just maybe she'll survive til spring, then you could do a two frame nuc with brood added to get her kick started with some backup support.
