My three hens are 26 weeks old and still aren't laying. I know it can depend on the breed, time of year... But I'm beginning to wonder if there is anything I can do to speed it along?! Or at least make sure I'm not doing anything wrong? They are fed layer feed, mixed with oyster shells and five way scratch. They live in a coop part of the day and free range when we are home... We live in Florida so I don't think the time of year is as important as if we lived in a colder climate. My friend who has chickens told me they may need a rooster to get going? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
