We bought some supposedly 1yr old hens from a local source, 3 weeks ago. They are nice hens, gentle and seem to be quite happy and adjusted to their new coup environment. But they still not layed any eggs. It is warm and sunny here for the last 3 days, they have enjoyed sun bathing and dust bathing and scratching around for all the emerging bugs. They are out of the coup just after dawn and spend most of the day in the yard. My DH thinks we were duped and they are not young but older hens, but I don't really know how to tell. They are fluffy and fine and healthy looking. So when will we have eggs?
