new chickens not laying

Post  chrissib on Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:31 am

hi, I have been keeping chickens purely for pleasure and eggs for the past couple of years now. Starting with 3, now I have introduced 5 more from very young, a mixture of different species. I used all the knowledge gained from experts and forums etc, to do it properly. Keeping them apart from the original 3 until adulthood, and well aware of pecking orders and hierarchy problems. The coup and run is huge in comparison to most.

However, the new 5, although old enough, will not lay. In fear of answering my own question, they still get bullied by 2 of the original hens. I have increased the nesting boxes from 1 to 3, and although they keep investigating the boxes, still no eggs.

Any ideas would be appreciated
Regards Chrissib
