    Ungrateful hens? Or I’m being impatient

    I just started with chickens a few months back. My hens have all hit 19 weeks this week and there is not an egg in sight. I have Marans, legbars and leghorns. I only have 7, but I do keep a gorgeous legbar cockerel in with them most days. Could they be stressed from him? They don’t seem to be...

I have a cream legbar cockerel, an Appenzeller cockerel, a pekin bantam cockerel and a serama bantam cockerel...
