    Hi everyone, I've been stressing for months because my 8 hens had not layed any eggs. One Easter Egger did lay for 3 weeks or so back in August, but then quit (I'm guessing due to the heat). I looked into everything-Food, Predators, Parasites, Molt, Etc and was satisfied that I was doing everything I should be doing. I couldn't come up with any good explanation and just as I was beginning to eyeball one of the really big girls for Thanksgiving-An Egg!, and then another and another and another. So, just wanted to let everyone out there stressing about no eggs know that THERE IS HOPE! If you're doing everything right then just keep doing it and they will eventually begin to lay.

    Cheers,

    SG

    Congrats! Yep, they will lay when their bodies are mature enough.
