    Had a small shed all wood for years chickens did a great job laying. Two summers ago built a new biulding metal with cement floors. I do put down chavings but may good lays stoped a hole year went by tried changing lighting, heat, fans. Still no change so I sold that flock, and stated over. This new group from 5-2015 has never even started. Could it be the building?

    What are you feeding? How much natural light do they get? Is there enough ventilation?

    I find that hens like shavings to walk around on but they prefer hay to lay their eggs. Perhaps you could try that.
