We have had our chickens since August and they haven't starting laying eggs. We have ten chickens total...2 Welsummer, 2 Delaware, 2 Ameracauna, 2 Maran, and 2 Olive Eggers...we think three of them are roosters, which is a totally different post. They live in a coop and they are outside during the day in a very sizable, enclosed run. We don't have a light in the coop, but they are outside from sunrise to sunset every day. Are we trying to make them overachieve or should they be laying eggs at this point? And by they way, I had no idea I would love them so much...having chickens is so much fun!
