    I got 3 Booted bantam hens in August, and at the time they were 3 months old. However, I got an ONE egg, and the next day, my neighbors dog got one of them, along with 5 other chickens, and I never got another egg. I am assuming the one that was eaten was the egg layer. I switched them to layers pellets at 7 months old. What am I doing wrong that they arent laying eggs?

    I dont know what booted bantum means?
    I got 2 frizzles in June. We got our first egg on Christmas. We still arent sure which one laid it.
    You live in FL, so I am not sure what your light situation is. Are they gettng 14 hours of light?
    are they molting? Maybe they are just waiting for spring...

    They are Belgian booted bantams. They are not molting. The light is about 11 hours a day.
