We where given a flock and thought we would be getting mainly hens well we found that we have 6 roosters and 7 hens. They are a mixed group of bantams and we have no idea how to encourage them to lay. We know they do lay the smaller eggs but at this point we have nothing, what should we do to encourage them to lay? We have had them for a week now and have not seen the first sign of egg laying activity.
