Justso, do you have extra lighting on your hens? that could be part of the problem. I don't expect my hens to lay before 6 months anyway....... mine are 5 months old now and I don't have extra lighting either. I think it pays to let them mature as far as possible before they start to lay.
MCM now that I recognize them as duck feet, I won't breed him, even for fun, that's a nasty fault. I thought all this came about from crossing 5 and 4 toed breeds but I see there's more to it now. Stryker he is an amazingly calm, sweet fellow, very tame- he just stands there and stares at me......... he's not at all spooky. He's the first to come over for treats. Can anyone see Buckeye in him? I can't really see any but it's possible. Actually duck foot is a fault that shows up in some of our Canadian buckeyes. Here he is, 5 months old:
