what can i feed or do to these birds to help them lay
It requires a period of settling in before adult layers will feel like laying. Provide a secure coop and run, good, healthy well-balanced feed, clean water every day, a comfortable nest box in a quiet place, and they will be laying inside of two weeks.
At the age of "one to two years old", I'm thinking your girls are likely in that 16-20 month range where they're going to molt and take the winter off to recharge before they start laying again in the spring.
If our OP is in the northern hemisphere, onset of molt could be an issue. Our OP will know this is the cause of not laying when they observe feathers dropping as leaves upon the ground, piling up like snow drifts under the perches.
