    I have 17 hens - I have been getting 2-3 eggs every day for about 2 weeks
    and no more - could it be that the rest of my girls are this slow in producing eggs ?
    they were all purchased from a hatchery at the same time - in March
    they are barred rocks - plymouth rocks - rhode island reds - I am pretty disapointed at this point i was so exctited
    with the idea that by now I would have a basket full of eggs a day -

    is this normal to have this many chicks still not laying

    Any info would be great

    Well if you got them in March, August or September should be your month.

    I got mine the end of April and I'm not expecting much until the middle of October.
