    I have 5 pullets, a buff orp, a white orp, a BCM that's possibly crossed with others, and 2 RIRs. The RIRs are the youngest at 32-33 weeks. So far only the Buff lays eggs. I've been leaving her eggs in the boxes to see if it might encourage the others but so far just have 4 eggs sitting in the boxes. I believe the White orp and BCM are about the same age as the orp but they are newly introduced so I"m not expecting to lay just yet.

    Should the Reds be laying or even the other 2? Temperature fluctuates a bit and would that cause them to goo off laying even though one still is?
