Hello everyone! I have four hens that I've raised since they were 3 days old. They're all about 17 weeks now and living in a chicken palace. I switched them to egg layer feed and oyster shells to prepare them for laying. In pecking order .. Miss Marmalade, plymouth barred rock Strudel, red star/golden buff Eggo, silver laced wyandotte Dippy, buff orpington Shouldn't they be laying soon? Who do you think will start laying first? Any ways you know to urge them to lay sooner? What should I expect/any helpful tips? I'm going crazy with excitement! Thank you!
