    Oh I just hope one day the girls will make eggs! I had chickens before and I am soooooo looking forward to my pretty frizzles, silkies & bantams making eggs!!!! We all turned 6 months old on the 18th of November. Everyday I go out there and hold the hens and give them a egg making pep talk. I love them so much!!! [​IMG] Some eggs would be nice though. They are eatting layer pellets & there are more than enough roos in there fertilizing them. Hope they aren't getting too much action from the roos.... [​IMG] All the sudden every roo out there figured out that they are a roo! [​IMG] Anyways..........I await my big day!!!! maybe it can be my b-day present on the 8th of December, nothing would be more thrilling to me! [​IMG]

    I have two hens that started laying at 8 months, and one freeloader that is going on 9 months STILL not laying...

    Patience, hmmm, must have lots of patience with some of these girls [​IMG]

    Our hens started laying real well when we
    took roosters out. I now have just one rooster
    for 20 girls and the problems have ceased. None of
    our girls have missing feathers or looked bred to death.

    I am a rookie and what blessings I have had. They started to lay at 4 months and around half are laying at 5 1/2 months now. [​IMG]

    I'm with you! It's funny, our girls are 24 weeks and one of our Easter Eggers started laying last week. She's laid 5 beautiful blue eggs so far, and the other girls haven't laid any. I'm hoping they all start soon! Hope you get eggs for your birthday. [​IMG]

    The place where I purchase feed told me that chickens need a certain number of hours of light to produce eggs. Try putting a light bulb on a timer for an extra fine hours and see if that works.
