    Are you feeding them a good layer ration? Do they have a nest box? Is it possible the are hiding eggs somewhere?

    Welcome to BYC!

    You've been asked some very good questions above that need to be answered before we can help you.
    Info about your coop and run would help too.

    Pics may help also. Some breeds do not lay until about a year old. And plenty of factors take part in when / if they lay. :welcome
