I have one more question about egg laying..... I am a new egg with my 1st chickens and my chickens are new also they are 16 weeks old. I am wondering if they will know what to do when it is time for them to lay. There is only the 6 of them and they are all the same age. They didn't know to go in the hen house at night ( I had to put them in there a couple of nights) and they still don't know to get onto the roost even though I have put them up there, they sleep in a huddle on the floor. We are all fumbeling our way through this.
