My RIR hens are 10 months old now and still aren't laying. I decided to lose some of the dead weight yesterday because my chickens are feeding me one way or the other. While butchering it was as if none of them had matured yet, there were no eggs in any sort of development phase. Anyone ever dealt with this before? I'm just trying to figure out why my flock is the least unproductive of any in existence. I had 13 hens yesterday(RIR, Black Aust, White Rock), one rooster, and one 3 month cockerell (one of their chicks, last one from an incubator batch). They are free range, fed layer pellets as a daily supplement, gorge themselves on plums, pears, and whatever is growing around the farm, and won't sit on an egg to save their life. I seriously have the laziest, spoiled rotten flock known to man. When I confine them in the coop for a few days to get an egg count, I get maybe 2 eggs a day, usually 1. Where did nature go wrong on this batch?
