    My 6 girls are still not laying. I got them in march/april as fluffy little peepers. I fed them start and grow they are semi free range. they are now on laying crumble. I give them greens and fruit egg shells and yummys from the kitchen almost everyday. my other hens have been laying for months and I purchased them a few weeks before. any idea what is going on? TIA

    If they are true Ameraucana, they tend to be a little less consistent as layers. I have a couple of wheaten Ameraucana pullets that hatched in February and have yet to lay their first egg. This close to winter, I don't expect them to start now until next spring.
