Hey everyone, For the life of me I can't figure out why my 6 hens haven't started laying yet. 2 are a little younger than the other four, but still no eggs. My only thought is that they are still too young (and unfortunately I do not know their exact age) but I am surprised to not even see the warning signs that egg laying is approaching. I got all six (2 buffs, 2 golden comets, 2 easter eggers) around July and they were the typical teenager age (can't remember exact - I thought something around 15 weeks or something?), and now we are in middle of October! Here are the pics I took today (sorry, can't get the pics to rotate - driving me nuts!): WHY aren't they laying yet? I live in VA - weather is great, no excessive bug issues, coop is clean, eating layer feed, getting oyster and scratch, I have searched high and low for eggs, they STILL are NOT doing the squat thing or singing any egg laying songs (even if they were hiding their eggs), they did rearrange the pecking order about a month ago but seem stable now. They free range in my backyard all day, all are healthy, happy, friendly. WHY??????
