    my legbar hens are about 26 weeks and they still aren't laying eggs, they seem very interested in the nest boxes ( roosting on them, sleeping in them, spending long amounts of time in them, arranging the straw etc.) but no eggs yet:( is anyone having similar problems?

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. It should be any time now. If you are having hot, dry weather, it could delay them some. :thumbsup
