    I have just received four new chickens. They are 12 month's old and were laying when I bought them, but now no eggs. I realise that it takes time for them to settle in, but it has been nearly 3 weeks and no results. Help please

    Do you have other chickens?
    How are they housed, tell us about your coop and run?

    NEI. Not enough information! We can only take wild guesses with the amount of info you've provided, and that would be a waste of time.

    Thanks for the feed back. The chickens are housed in a pen which has a run of about 6metres x 5metres and that does not include the "Hen Hilton"which is a coop that is about 2 metres high and around 2 metres x 2 metres in size. They are the only chickens we have and guess what we had two eggs today. they are fed layer pellets and every day greens and rice to raise the protein level in the food.
