I have 3 chickens- 2 hens and a Rooster. They are about 7 months old and I haven't seen any eggs. They are free ranged in my approx 1/2 back yard. I'll be honest, I don't have a nesting box. Hubs was supposed to build me a coop but that never happened due to time and finances. There are a few trees in one area of my yard that they like to hang out under- no eggs. Most nights I go to bed and they are sleeping either on the railing of my deck or on the deck its self. They are generally still there in the morning when I go to let the dogs out. I'm worried that since they don't have a coop that's why I'm not getting any eggs. I search and search the yard but can't find them any where. Also, about a week ago I noticed the rooster trying to mate with them so I know that they are at an age where they should be producing at this time. Please help. Also, what do I need to be doing for the guys as far as not having a coop for them?
