I'm living on Seattle's Eastside and have my own little urban flock. I have three Rhode Island Reds and they have yet to lay eggs?
I purchased them as 3 day old chicks on April 23rd this year. Everything I've read says that new hens lay between 18-20 weeks. Yet I'm still looking for my first egg. I'm going crazy! I do not know what to do... am I missing something?
They always have food and water. They have no interest in any extra calcium... my oyster shells go untouched in the dish. They have a large coop that they roam in and they are able to run around the back yard during the day. I clean it every other day of excess poo and they have two nesting boxes.
I need some help troubleshooting my flock....
