No eggs yet :(

I have 4 sweet hens that I got as chicks in April.  Shouldn't they be laying by now?  I had them on developer until a few weeks ago and I didn't want to buy another bag of developer since I figured that they would start laying any day so now I have them on laying pellets.  They get lots of kitchen scraps, plenty of water, they seem to be happy.  I'm confused. :/

I would imagine that they will begin laying very soon. Signs include reddening of the comb and squatting in front of you. I know its a tough one, but patience is the name of the game i am afraid!

Depending on when you got them in April, they would currently be somewhere between 5 and 6 months old which is when most breeds begin laying so (assuming they are actually pullets) they should begin laying soon.
