    Glad to have you here! [​IMG]

    This area of the forum is about Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying. It might be the best place on BYC to look for information to answer your question. Feel free to start a new thread for your question there, too. [​IMG]

    Welcome,

    Give them some time yet.

    They will lay when they are ready,

    It takes them time to settle and they are still quite young.

    By the time the weather starts to improve they will be excellent layers.

    Enjoy the site and be patient , it wil be worth it.

    Jena.
