Only the ISAs are old enough to lay. Have they recently stopped laying? Are you sure they're all hens? Have the days been getting shorter? Are they molting?

I got them a guy that said they were laying. I got a few eggs then nothing. I have a light that comes at 4:30 AM in coop. All hens and no molting.

How long ago did you get them? Possibilities: 1) Moving stresses chickens and can cause them to stop laying. 2) Your older birds may be coming into molt and have stopped laying. 3) Your protein is quite low, 16% is considered the bare minimum for most feed. 4) Some of the younger birds may not have yet come into lay - I don't know how honest, accurate or reliable the seller was.

When I got my adult hens, I got one egg, then a month and a half of no laying before I got eggs again. I'm still only getting eggs from three of them. It may just be moving stress.
