and welcome to the flock from NC. Chickens mature at different rates so it could be that they are close to the laying but just not quite there yet. I have 3 (different breeds) all hatched at the same time and 1 has been laying for about 2 weeks now, nearly every day. One of the others is interested in the best but that is as close as she gets, the other one could care a less about the nest or eggs in general. You could be right though about the light issue and the molting if you are seeing a lot of feathers floating around. Maybe someone else will be able to give you some solid advice. Good luck...
