I have four hens; two isa brown and two arakauna. isa brown are 4 mo. old and the arakauna's are about 1 year old. i got the isa's from my aunt who raises them for eggs and bought the two arakauna's from a kid via craigslist after a third isa got turned into a pile of feathers by a neighborhood cat. all is well with the coop. they have permanent water and food available 24/7 and have about 20 sq. ft. outside and 20 sq. ft. inside with multi-levels inside. i live in a detroit suburb and there aren't feed stores around so i started them out on a mix from a exotic bird store and fed veggie table scraps. whenever i mow the lawn or weed the garden, i toss the weeds in for them to peck at. i just bought a 50 lb. bag of proper hen feed and they've transitioned fine to the different feed. before they had pretty much cracked corn and hemp seeds and oatmeal. there are three different dark boxes inside for them. i can't have a rooster, the neighbors are already nice about the hens and my beehive, so i'm not going to push it with crowing. so, the arakauna's haven't laid any eggs yet. i've had them for almost 2 months now and they ought to be about a year old. is there something i'm missing? any tips?
