So I have three Silver Laced Wyndotte hens and one silkie hen and one silkie roo. Not one of my hens has laid an egg (that I am aware of). I have raised all of these chickens from chicks, and I got them back in May. They eat well, get plenty of sunshine/outdoor time but are not laying. My local feed store suggested that they might be eating them and to look for yolks on their beaks, and I go down to their coop multiple times through out the day to see if I could catch them in the act of eating the eggs or something - but nothing. I have put golf balls in their nesting boxes to encourage them to lay. I have been keeping the chickens enclosed in their run - we have had horrible luck with predators of all kinds, and it has helped to keep this flock alive as long as I have thanks to keeping them in the run, so its not like they could be hiding their eggs. Im not quite sure what to do. I enjoy my birds, but I really, really want to get eggs.
