    I need some serious advice...
    We have Cochens and Road Island Reds that we got in Feb. it's now Sept. and we haven't seen one egg. My husband isn't the happiest cause we got them for the eggs and meat but now since we've waited this long for eggs I'm afraid if we butcher them the meat will be to tough. Anyone have any insight? I'm no sure if we need to give them more time or just put them in the freezer.

    It depends on a lot of things, do you use a rooster, or laying feed. And do you have enough calcium in their diet, and did you received them is little ones, or were they already a few month's old.

    The ranch supply store has been giving me a mixture of scratch grains they said not to feed them the one with egg shells or extra calcium until they lay their first eggs. We got them as babies only about a week or two old.
