    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!

    Do they run free during the day or are they restrained in a coop/run?

    Do you provide them with supplemental lighting? Use a timer for the light to come at 5 am and off at 8 am?

    They free range sometimes, as we have dogs. Their new coop allows much more room in the run than before. They do not have a light
