Hi there! My friend got some baby chicks, which should be laying by now but aren't! Hers are older than mine and mine have started laying but not hers. She is concerned so I told her I would reach out here to see if I can help get her answers. So, she has hens that are a year old and then she has baby chicks that are approx. 20 weeks. She never did introduce them in the same coop, however they wander the yard together when they are out. So each set of hens has their own "home" away from each other. The new hens are in a temporary home while they add on to the existing coop to make room for all of them. Therefore, there are no nesting boxes and no actual coop for them to go into. Where they are kept is more of just a run...it's where they stack their wood but it's closed in with fence. They should be laying by now but aren't, any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help!
