    Hi all,

    My chickens were born on 25th of May.
    Shouldn't they have started laying already? [​IMG]

    Thank you,

    I have been wondering the EXACT same thing. The chicks I have I got in April. They haven't laid ONE egg.[​IMG] It is driving me insane. I also have a 2 year old hen that we got for trading a rooster that was to loud. She hasn't laid a thing either, and we got her three months ago. I will be watching this thread to see what people say. Hope you have better luck with your chickens than I do![​IMG]

    5 months, should be soon, it depends on breeds and sometimes diet. Keep them on a non medicated grower until most or all are laying.
