I am a first time chicken owner, we got 8 RIR on March 22 and they were 4 weeks old at that time. It is now the middle of August and I would think they would have started laying by now. They have been fully grown looking for quite awhile now. They are well fed, well tended, well housed and their nesting boxes are all ready. Is there anything I am doing wrong and do all hens lay or there just some that are "duds"? Sorry if this all sounds stupid but you can just roll your eyes and laugh. But I just dont know.
