I've had my girls for three weeks now and they seem to be settling in. They eat like queens - good layer crumble, scratch, crickets off the lawn, some of my leftover cornbread and the occasional strawberry or slice of peach or lettuce. They get plenty of fresh water and at least 10 hours of daylight. I even installed a solar-powered LED light for the inside of their coop to give them some extra light. They know where the nest boxes and roost are and they are all 1 -2 years old and were laying for the guy I bought them from. He told me that they would take a week to ten days to settle and get used to their new home before they would start laying again but it's been longer than that and still nothing. With the days getting shorter and colder, I understand that egg production slows down but jeepers, I'd just like the thrill of one egg before the show flies. Any tips or advice for a novice? Thanks, Barbara PS - forgot to say that they are Easter Eggers.
