Hi, I'm new here. My wife and I live on an acre lot in a small town in Western Arkansas and just got a chicken "tractor" and found a guy wanting to sell 14 mo. old golden comet layers at $10 each which I jumped at. The five hens i bought never seemed stressed and adapted easily to their mobile coop. It HAS been less than a week but I am still surprised that they haven't laid an egg. Not one. The hens appear to be very healthy and, if anything, look younger than 14 months (maybe because they are on the small side). They eat well and are very calm and friendly. I just hope they are not "done" as layers...since getting them I've read some posts here where people said this cross will start laying early but sometimes quit early too. Thoughts?
