I have 3 RIR and 3 Welsumer all 22 weeks old and still no eggs. Is this normal ? I started feeding them layer feed at 19 weeks. I was told 19-20 weeks they should lay. I didn't want to prematurely post this so I gave them two extra weeks. They don't appear to be squatting as other threads stated they would do when they were close to laying. I'm pretty sure they are not rooters. I would have heard them by now I think. Is there something that would cause an egg layer to never produce a single egg ? At what point do you count your losses make soup and start over ?
