    how old are they ? you do know that most hen's dont lay until they are at least 6 months old or older I have learned that on here and with the weather being colder now and the loss of daylight hours they are most likely in what is call a molt mine will be 6 months old come February but I am really not expecting eggs til in the spring because of these factors just be patient , pray and it will happen before
    you know it

    Quote:I am also waiting but today 2 of my girls, age 21 weeks tomorrow, starting squatting. Their combs and waddle have been red since they were 17 weeks old then the past month started to swell up, which is normal. So hang in there.
