    I have a mixture of different chicken breeds... 20 or so... that were hatched the last week of April, and none of the girls have started laying yet. I just found out they had mites and treated today. Could this be the only reason they are not laying, or am I just overanxious for them to start? I figured they'd be laying by now.

    Be patient! Mine were hatched the first week of May. I got my first egg on 9/22 and the second today. Some take even longer. It's hard waiting though, isn't it? Hope it's soon! Do any of your pullets have a really red comb and wattle? That means it's gonna be soon. Good luck!
