    Beautiful East Texas
    I have 2 buff orpingtons and 3 barred rocks who are all 25 weeks old, give or take a day or two depending on the chicken. I have yet to see an egg!
    I live in East Texas so they did their maturing during the hot summer. And I had coyotes rob me of 3 hens and 5 roosters just a few weeks ago. Could the heat and traumatic experience have led to delayed laying?

    Your hens might not be laying for these reasons:
    -Age
    -Undiscovered nest
    -Undiscovered pest
    -Health
    -Improper nutrition
    -Molting

    Good luck![​IMG]
