    I bought 6 Barred Rocks about 2 months ago. They were born in late March (so they are over 20 weeks). They are still not laying! I have been feeding them the layer pellets that I fed my other flock. Any thoughts on this?????? I'm getting very impatient [​IMG]

    25 weeks is not uncommon as start date for your breed. Begin learning egg cup carving, maybe by the time you perfect your egg cups, you will have eggs to put in them. [​IMG]
