    Hi there
    What age are they?
    What breed are they? Are they hybrids?
    You shouldn't be concerned if there only young.
    Every bird will start laying at different times
    Goodluck

    Don't worry. The rate at which Easter Eggers develop can vary a lot. Some start at just 18 weeks old, others don't lay until about 8 months. Both extremes, and everything in between, are completely normal.
