In April, my parents, brother and I all got chicks from the same place. They have all been raised the same as far as I know. We have all fed our chickens the same things. My parents and my chickens have been good layers since sometime in August. I have about 35 and my mom has about 25. I get about 2 1/2 doz eggs a day and mom gets about 1 1/2 doz. They have provided us much entertainment and we have had no problems with them as far as sickness or growth. My brother has about 20 chickens from the same group. We bought all of these chicks together and just counted out the number that we wanted from the group after we got them home and took them to each of our homes. My brother has yet to receive an egg. His chickens don't seem sick, they may be a little smaller than ours, but otherwise look okay. Any ideas as to why he would not have received any eggs yet when ours are laying so well? Also, do you think there is any hope that they will start laying?
