You can't make a hen lay eggs. When she is mature, feels safe and secure, then she will start laying. My Narragansett hens started at 9 months, my Broad Breasted Bronze hen started at 10 months. Are you sure of the age of your hens? Are they displaying breeding behavior, like trying to find a corner to build a nest in? Or are they free ranging, with possibly eggs hidden about the yard?
