I have 23 week Wyandottes that are not laying yet. I started growing fodder and sprouting seeds. The chickens won't eat it!! I have tried wheat, barley, oats, and boss. I have kept layer feed and oyster shell available also, any suggestions

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Not sure why they are not going for the fodder.  Are they used to getting greens?

Some birds stop or don't start laying  when the daylight hours are shortened.  That may be the reason.  Are you certain they are all pullets?

Some breeds start at 24 weeks is when they start. The shorter daylight could affect it.
