    I have a Buff Orpington and 2 Wyndottes. They are now 24 weeks old. I have yet to receive a single egg - should I be worried?

    Thanks.

    They can lay as late as 28 weeks and could they have a hidden nest?

    It's also fall when chickens lay spiratically, if at all. Some start laying between 24-27 weeks. Patients, young Jedi ;)

    No free range. They have a coop with 2 nesting boxes, an 8 ft. run attached,, and a small shed-like area attached to that. I have searched but as I posted - nothing!

    Still waiting.
