Chickens 6 months old and not laying

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

6 month old chickens..

I have 5 chickens.. 2 buff orpingtons, 2 black australorps and one rhode island red.

One of the buffs and one black have been laying for about a month... they are free range and

very healthy, but shouldn't the others be laying by now???  thank you!

Karl

They are around the right age, depending on breeding they should start within the next month, though since you have brought it up, they will probably start this week.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Chickens aren't like machines, they grow and mature differently. They should lay soon but it will happen at different speeds.


Hope this helped!
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.
