Hi - We've got three lovely girls: a Wyandotte, a Polish and a Silkie (all bantams, just over 6 months old). The Wyandotte, Leslie, bless her, has been laying diligently for a month now, albeit with a patch of broodiness here and there. The other two haven't laid at all. They're not too smart, either of them, but we thought they'd soon do whatever Leslie does because she's top chook. Nup. Nothing. Does anyone know how to encourage chooks to lay? They're definitely old enough, and they're certainly all happy and well-fed enough. And they have been making lots of noise, which is what Leslie has been doing when she lays, but all noise and no eggs. Have looked to see if they've been laying in secret places on the sly, but can't find a thing. I work from home, so I've been able to keep a close eye on them. Any ideas, anyone?
