    Hi, we are new chicken owners, raised them from day old. I have a Black sex-link, a Barred Rock, and 2 Americaunas. All of them are 7 months old.
    My Americaunas are not laying yet, but the other 2 are. They all get plenty of sunlight and roaming space. Any ideas why my 2 bearded girls are not laying? Any advice would be appreciated. The chickens all get along nicely and are fed a laying formula along with greens and bugs.
