    I bought from a local hatcher, 4 rhode island red hens, approximately (i dont remember exactly) 8 weeks old. Its been over 5 weeks since ive had them and and not one egg yet. Not even an attemp yet....lol [​IMG] they are on a daily diet of scratch/layer crumbles and a treat of old bread every now and then.. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated...mike

    they are 13 wks old right now right? If so most pullets will not lay unitl about 20 wks...so you still got a ways to go.
    Good luck with your rhode island reds i have some and love them!! :)
