    I am completely stumped, I have two dom. and three delawares and they are all eight months old. And none of them are laying eggs!!! I have checked at all times of the day and night checking just in case! I have went from a 8% to 22% portein feed. I even got them two cuttebones, but still nothing at all. What am I doing wrong?

    Welcome to BYC. Any chance they're eating the eggs?

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. Are you sure you have the % right? You should have been feed a chick starter which is 20-24% protein, then drop to around 16% layer feed when laying age is reached. They just might be a little behind in development with the low protein. If they are free ranging, just make sure they aren't laying somewhere else. :thumbsup
