This spring we added seven new chicks to our flock of five older hens. (One of the new ones turned out to be a Roo) The newbies are now six months old but none of them have laid their first egg. We had them on starter feed for the first 18 weeks then switched them to layer feed. They free range for a few hours a day. When we thought they would start laying we confined the whole flock to the coop. We wanted to make sure the new ones knew where to lay their eggs. After several days of no new eggs we decided to let them out again. During this time we kept an eye on the Roo to see how they all got along. He began to dominate the new hens...somewhat viciously... so we made arrangements to move him to our friend's farm. We thought they may have been too stressed by the Roo to start laying. Well it's been a couple of weeks and still nothing. Are we missing something here? Any advice?
