    I have more than a dozen peahens out in my pen, and none have layed eggs yet. Has anyone had this same problem?

    (They are not egg eaters)

    is this the first year you've had them for mating season???

    they are really good at hiding the eggd i noticed...

    one of mine would lay her egg where ever she happened to be... befre i moved i found 4 eggs from her, in 4 different places.... and not in made nests either... hte middle of the walkway, under a tree, on top of the neighbors shed....

    go on a serious egg hunt, or sit out latter in the evening and watch where they go...

    There's been a couple of threads about this this year. Everyone seems to be slow on them, myself included. I have 11 breeder age hens (all 3-7 years old) only 4 are laying so far.

    Of course yearling wont lay for you at all, and 2 year olds may be slow if they were a late season hatch.

    All are 3 years and up, and no they can not possibly hid their eggs (They are in a coop). I had eggs last year. [​IMG]
