    I got my show quality bantam cochins when they were 7 months old , I have had them for almost a year and now they are hens, and the problem is they won't lay and I was wondering if you guys could give me a tip on things for my cochins so they will lay.:)

    Welcome to BYC. Have you spoken with the breeder that you got them from? If they were mine I would put them on a gamebird breeder formulation and try to arrange for supervised free range opportunities. Have they ever laid for you?

    Thanks, I have not spoken with the breeder because I don't have contact with him. They have not layed for me yet.
