So ... I've read the article about why chickens aren't laying yet ... and I still can't seem to fix my issue.
Here's the info ... if anyone can help, awesome ...
3 chickens, red-crosses, that I hatched in an incubator last June. (received the eggs from a friend.) So they are about 43 weeks now. I do not THINK they are roosters ... no crowing ... and they all look the same ... like hens ... nothing like their rooster dad.
They "matured" over the winter, we're in CT, so daylight is low and I didn't expect eggs until Spring.
I've made sure they have plenty of layer feed and fresh water. They get 12+ hours of light now. They are in a coop I bought online; but they spend time wandering together in the yard every day, eating bugs and exploring. I don't see any signs of stress. They are happy, silly, curious birds. Their feathers are nice and shiny ... eyes are bright ... wattles and combs have gotten red and developed.
A friend recommended an oyster shell supplement. So I'll buy that today. I just read an article about egg eaters. Is this possible? That I never saw even a shell fragment?
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
