    Okay, so I'm getting a bit frustrated. I have 4 chickens, sorry, but I don't know what the types are, I just can tell you what they look like. I have 3 white with a little black on the wing tips, and one eastereger. I raised these chicks from day old, and we still have no eggs. We got a larger coop last weekend and it has four nesting boxes. They are lined with hay, they have heated water, and they get fed. Any help would be appreciated!

    [​IMG] Actually, the change to the new coop may have set them back a bit longer. Chickens dislike change in their environment. I would guess that now that daylength is increasing you will soon see eggs. Once we are having 14 + hours of daylight, your hens should start laying. Are you providing them with a balanced laying ration?

    If it's Winter, then you're not likely to see eggs until spring or summer. [​IMG]
