Well, we came home to a disaster the other night. Our weimaraner, Emma, escaped the house and killed 3 of our best ladies while they were free ranging, needless to say my 3 youngest children were devastated, as was the wife, so I found someone who was trying to get rid of his New Hampshire Reds and I brought them home. Well it has been a week now and they have yet to lay the first egg. They are not molting, they will be a year old on the 18th of this month, and they do not appear to be stressed. I feed them Dumor poultry layer 16% will some cracked corn in it ( same thing the 3 others had been eating ) they get fresh water everyday and are free to roam the pen until they have been here a while longer (Emma, the villain, is now incarcerated in an electrified fence) does anyone have any ideas? Im thinking its because they are in a new place and maybe they didn't eat the same diet I have them on now. could that be it?
