    My girls are 7 months and haven't started laying yet. I was told that it was because it is so hot here they don't start laying till it gets cooler. Is there any vitamin or supplement I can put in their food? I have a mister system and a "chicken bath" so I don't think that heat is a problem.[​IMG]

    If they appear to be healthy and have food, water, and shelter, you may just have to wait.

    Sorry Donrae, it took awhile to figure out how to post the pictures. These are the five. My production red has a crusty comb. Any ideas how to get it normal again?
