Why aren't my chickens laying eggs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this sounds too pushy but I'm anxious. I have 3 leghorns, 1 Easter Egger, and a lot of gamefowl chickens. NONE of them have started laying. They are all healthy, and the average temperature here is 50 degrees. I seen chickens lay in the snow so I'm sure the cold isn't it. Anyone? Thanks in advance.

how long have you had them ? a few days is not enough.

 

I find that diet and housing have a lot to do with it. Mine keep laying all winter regardless of how many neighbors tell me that their chooks have stopped laying. Mine are better fed and freerange, so they'd be more likely to lay than cooped up. Their chicken tractor is not too bad either, large and secure.

If you wonder about diet, then give them your food scraps along with those from the neighbors or local restaurants or markets. A lawn is not food. Leaf litter in a garden is food, the deeper the mulch the better. They'll pick through and find all the critters they like to eat.

I agree with everything Godofpecking says. How old are they and what do you feed them? Do they free-range?

Romans 3:23 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 10:9-10 – that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
