    HI I am new here and I just wanted to introduce myself! I have 14 chickens, 4 rooster Rockey (Barred Rock), Speckels (Speckled Sussex), Pat (Partridge Cochin), Dave (White Cochin) and 10 hens Buffy (Buffed Orpington), Ruby (Rhode Island Red), Easter (New Hampshire red, we first thought that she was an Easter egger but decided to keep her name!), Lacie (Black Australorp), Aunika (Welsummer), Willow (Easter Egger), Ester (Easter Egger), Blue (Blue Andalusian), Sam (Black Sumatra), and Alice (Cuckoo Maran) NO one has started laying yet. We hatched our 4 roosters and Sam in Late May and got the rest in late July. They are on a diet of Meal worms, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Whole Oats and Whole Corn (We can't find any organic whole corn) Sorry if this was too much information!!!

    Thank you!!! And I am praying that we get eggs soon!!! Sadly it's winter and I heard that it's rare to get eggs in winter let alone when they haven't started laying yet!!! But I am keeping my hopes up!!!!

    Your welcome! I hope that you are planning for more hen's for those 4 rooster's, or it's going to be very rough of those 10 hen's and the roosters will fight for breeding rights. One rooster alone can handle all 10 of those hen's by himself.
