    Got some free from a friend and in 3 weeks I've had them no eggs. All other egg layers in flock are fine. He said they were laying fine and once the got used to new home would pick up where they left off. All my other chickens layer within a week of getting here. I think I might have some bum chickens on my hands

    That's where they are headed. No eggs to the freezer with you.

    They have 14 hrs of light. I think they heard me talking about eating them because I think one started to lay. Hopefully others will follow.
