Hey all Okay so I have 5 hens who are about 6 months old, and not one has started laying! I feed them layer pellets, they always have fresh water, they're healthy... My roosters don't harass them either, so it's not like they're stressed. I have one other silkie hen, Rosey, who hasn't laid but she just molted and still has her chick with her. So I'm confused! I have no idea why none of them are laying. They get ample time outside too, probably 7+ hours a day. Also, we've searched all over and they haven't laid any in the woods or otherwise. We provide them with nesting boxes and this morning I'm pretty sure one of my Orps was attempting to lay. The egg had no shell, but by the time I got ahold of her to try and help it was like she sucked it back in or something... It wasn't like she laid it anywhere else, I'd been following her and keeping close watch. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!
