Hey there, I currently have 5 hens and one guinea. 3 of the hens are about 27 weeks old, the other two are a few weeks younger. All are healthy, happy, well fed and free range. Only one of my 27 week old hens is laying. She is fairly consistent and always lays in the nest box. However, none of the other hens are. I am going to thoroughly search the yard to make sure there isn't a nest hidden somewhere. The other girls will sit around and watch the laying hen, so they should know where to lay. One of the younger hens also sleeps in the nest box so she definitely knows where it is. Is it possible that the hens won't lay until the spring (or at all)? Can hens skip a whole season if their age lines up with decreased light/molting? Any suggestions? Thanks!
