    How old is your chicken?

    Are you sure it is a hen?

    What is your weather like?

    A bit more information about your situation will help us all be able to answer your question better.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Do you have only one chicken? If so, maybe that's the problem as chickens don't like to be alone.

    As the previous poster mentioned, age is also very important. And, of course, if it's a roo (sometimes you don't know for a very long time), you'll NEVER get eggs!

    Good luck! [​IMG] Genie

    Well, if one isn't ready to lay yet then she'll only lay when she is ready to. There's really nothing you can do to make a chicken lay eggs until her body says it is time! [​IMG]


    Hope this helps!
