    They might be molting... I have two birds that lay all through the winter but have not gotten an egg from them in 2 weeks because they are in molt rightt now... molt tales about a month... Or it could just be that it is early in the season... spring hatches usually don't start laying until the weather warms up the following spring to start laying in my experiance... My ees that hatched out last spring just started laying last week... So maybe they just need a little more time... I'm in MO....
