about 1 month and a half ago now, we purchased our first chickens ever, 2 white leg-horns. we waited about 2 weeks until we got our first eggs which only one of the chickens was laying. She laid about 5 eggs, 1 a day for 5 days and then stopped as soon as we introduced 2 new Isa browns to the flock. Unfortunately about a week or 2 after that 1 of the White leg-horns passed away so we had just 3 chickens left. Then we introduced 5 little 10 week old chickens to the flock. So now we have 8 chickens and I'm aware that we won't see any eggs from the young ones for quite some time. But I haven't seen a single egg from the older ones for a whole month. and 2 of the older ones haven't laid any at all. I'm wondering if they have been put off by the young ones moving in? or the death of the leg-horn chicken. I feed them a mixture of Grains and Layers pellets. As well as fruit and Veg scraps. I keep there cubby house clean and they have several nesting boxes to choose from. So I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong? or is there any way I can encourage them to start laying. or should I just be patient.
