    So my hens are all the same age 5 and a half to 6 months I have about 35 and out of all of them only one is laying eggs, 1 egg everyday. I have EEs, white leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, red sexlinks, cuckoo marans, and a couple of bantams. I’m feeding them a combination of laying crumbles and layer mash. Most of them have well developed combs and wattles good red color to them. They get lots of sunlight, oyster shell, and grass and scraps. Many of them have been making nests in the hay in the nest boxes and visiting them often but no eggs just 1 a day from a lone leghorn. What am I doing wrong here, shouldn’t some others be laying by now.

    My ladies are 27 weeks and I just started getting eggs on friday from 1 leghorn. Patience is all we can have at this point. Now that the weather is finally giving us a break from such high temps i am predicting the rest of the ladies to soon follow.
