I know why mine hens weren't laying an egg. Shunshine and sofie turn out to be rooster. I fed these chickens all those months and was waiting for one egg. I thought I was doing some thing wrong but I wasn't. They weren't made to lay an egg. I bought them from some one and he told me they were females. Don't tell some one they are females if you don't know the sex. Just say I don't know and it's okay. At least you know then that the chick can be a rooster too.
