    I have two Maran hens running with a Maran cock all from Eggs hatched easter 2008. My problem is that I have yet to get a single egg, was expecting them to start in October 2008 to no avail. They are in a Ark and I am feeding them on Layers Pellets and scraps - Am I expecting too much or doing something wrong?

    Do you mean Marans? If so, they start laying later than some breeds. Mine are not laying yet either. Patience [​IMG]
