I understand chickens laying takes time but my hens are 7 months old already! Their combs are a bit more redder from the pale that they were like 2 weeks ago, one of them even does an egg song every once in a while and their feathers are in their nest boxes but no eggs. They are free ranged from 8 in the morning to 7 in the evening. The younger chickens don't free range till the afternoon so they can't be eating their eggs if they are laying, also they don't even share a coop.. I have dug through the straw to see if they are eating their eggs but nope. They are the only 2 7 month olds I have and they even have their own coop. Taking time right? Will they start laying soon? They are lavender orpingtons.
