I hatched some production reds on Feb, 5, 2013 and have been fighting to get them to lay to this day. I fed them chick starter for 3 months after they hatched and transitioned to 16% protein sweet feed for the next 6 months. I switched them over to layer pellet as they were not laying. I added a 75w light to the coop and increased the hours 1 hour a day until it hit 18 hours of light. That was in December. Now it is almost February and still no eggs. I have looked for parasites and found none. They have always had fresh water and bedding every day. I dump out the ice and give them fresh 50 degree water every mourning. I have tried everything I can think to do. Now they are almost one year old. Please help. Edit: They are getting 100% layer pellet. All they can eat. I am not mixing any other grain with their food. They have access to crushed limestone.
