Hello All, I am new to raising chickens with this being my first flock. We started our with 3 day old chicks back in late April. We got 4 Polish hens and 2 Buff Orpington hens (at least that is what we believe the correct breed). One of the Orpingtons turned out to be a rooster and we had to give him away at about 12 weeks. So my biggest concern is that our hens are now 41 weeks old and we have yet to get one egg. They have been on Purina Organic grower feed since we brought them home, they also eat veggies from our garden and left over Salad, etc. I have a light in the coop on for 14 hours a day and they come out of the coop any time the temp is above 20 degrees (we live in Wisconsin). Our local country store has told us to stay on starter feed until they start to layou. [/IMG] Has anyone else experienced this long for hens to start?? Any advice would be helpful!! Thanks in advance!
