i have 4 buffs and they're approx 20-25 weeks old, i got them on june 13 according to the older gent i got them from they were about 13 weeks old then. they free range all day in the yard and go in at night about a week or so ago they started going into a brushy area, i keep checking there/all over to see if they've been laying yet but no eggs yet. i go to work all day so nobody is around to watch them if they lay. any suggestions on what to do? their combs/waddles are a dark red color. i also have some ee pullets which are a few weeks behind the buffs. they seem to hang closer to the coop while the buffs seem to always be on the move foraging, thats all they seem to do, esp when i cut the grass they love eating the crickets. thanks for any info jim.
