Hello I have an 8-month old New Hampshire Red pullet that I'm quite worried about......she's healthy and happy, eating and pecking about, but she's still not laying..... I'm wondering if it is because I was feeding her chicken grower mash instead of laying mash, but I heard that they are only to be fed laying mash once they start laying, but my family is forcing me to give them laying mash. I checked on her features to see if she's a non-productive hen, but she passed the characteristics of a productive hen. I also think that she might be laying behind my back - there's a section of the coop that they like to hang around (behind a ladder) that she might be laying on, but I still haven't checked it yet(I can't fit into the coop!), or they might be eating the eggs. I'm not sure about my guesses, but do you think there's a reason for her not laying? Please help! Thanks in advance!
