    Is this normal? I do have a rooster with my other two hens, that I need to find a good home for, but could this be a reason why my EE hens aren't laying? Could it be the shorter daylight hours?

    Where's my eggs?![​IMG]

    I didn't have anyone start until 26 weeks. Be patient. Actually my EE was the first to lay. I have no rooster so they don't need that.

    I do have mine on 14 hours of light, which has gotten all 9 of laying age going. They all started around 26-28 weeks. I got 9 eggs yesterday.

    They'll figure it out.
