I just purchased some new chickens to start my flock with. I was told that they were redcaps and between a year and a year a half old. I've had them now for almost two months and they haven't laid any eggs yet. I'm wondering if this is normal (because when I purchased them, I was told they were starting to lay quite well) and if they appear to be redcaps to all of you. I have an odd feeling that the person who I bought them from may have been telling me what I want to hear to sell them. A little back-ground for the question about the egg laying. I have 4 hens, no roosters, they have an 8x8 coop with an outside run and are eating Purina Layena and I give them bread in the morning as a treat. Thanks for your input.
