I have 8 Rhode Island Red hens and 2 Rhode Island Red Roosters. They are exactly 6 months old today and they have not laid a single egg. They get a quality layer feed, they free range from 4pm-8pm and the weather has been beautiful. Their combs are a nice bright red also. The roosters have begun crowing and trying to mount the hens. I have placed fake eggs in the nesting boxes even. Still no eggs. When oh when will these stubborn hens start laying their eggs? I have never had hens take this long to start laying before! It is frustrating me lol.
