I got 2 buff orpingtons in February 2014, they started to lay eggs in May and then both became broody in the summer. Broodiness turned into molting and now, I have not had one egg since August 27th!! I had them raise some chicks and now have 4 chickens ages 17 weeks, 27 weeks and one year. I feed, water and house them but nothing, nada... I kind of got into doing this for the eggs and am more than a little frustrated. None of them are doing the egg song or squatting. I assume that means weeks more of waiting!! Argg!!
