    Mine are not laying much because I walk them from the coop to the far back yard for the day. Even though I put in a shelter and nest box they rarely lay. I even found an egg in the grass. Have you made a change like this? Our temps are hitting the 90's now too,and I find them laying in the woods spread out to cool off.

    Could you please tell us a little more about your birds? For example, how old are they, how many do you have, do they stay in a coop?

    Quote: Though more information would be helpful, you cannot make a chicken lay. They are not machines. They are living creatures.

    Honey, Their legs being yellow does not help. I see they are 2 years. What about the other questions asked? Here are a few more... Are they looking a little ratty? Meaning are they loosing feathers? They might be molting. Have you added anyone new lately? We really want to help you Dear. We need more information.

    1 or 2 are molting. and yellow legs mean they should be laying I think. that's what I was told anyway.
