We received our chickens on May 27th, so they are 27 weeks and we have not even had ONE lousy egg! And that is out of 28 hens! I know they don't lay when the days are shorter (without light in the henhouse), but my goodness, we thought we would at least get a few! They free range, but basically stick to our yard (because we also give them chicken feed). We have checked all their hangouts, and still nothing! We have many breeds, so we thought that someone should have given us at least one egg. Do we really have to wait until spring? (We prefer not to add artificial light to the henhouse.) ETA: We are in Northern Ohio, if that matters. And they were actually hatched on may 27th.
