Dont expect chickens to all lay at the same times, even older ones. Egg laying times vary breed to breed, other factors are involved as well. Give the older ones time, they'll lay eggs eventually. As far as the poop is concerned, it sounds like they shed intestinal lining which is normal.

ye i dont expect them to lay at the same time etc.just thought it may be something like she couldnt lay or something if i make sense.but defo feel relieved after looking at the poop pics haha,the one i was actually thinking about has just in the last hour started acting like my first chicken that laid,been in the nest box squating about squarking ,and her back end is kind of contracting,so im presuming shes wanting to try to lay now.xx
