    This is our first year raising chickens. Very exciting times around here. But only on hen is laying all the hens were purchased at the same time. She is doing well giving us a egg a day for the past week only one soft shell. Any tips thanks

    More information may give you more responses.

    I have 6 hens - 3 BO and 3 BR, got all at 3 days old. first 3 BR started laying one week apart. 2 BO followed within a month. But 1 was 2 or more months later. Searched forums on BYC about the delayed BO and found many take quite awhile to lay.

    Suggest you post what breed you have and how old they are...
