Could they have layed some in the garden or bush if you have any? I have heard these guys hide their nests in the bush or long grass.

Or they are too young to lay thinkerg.gif give them another season and if not some new hens as you said.

Hi Craig, some hens can skip a season, they don't have to lay every year as part of their cycle.


Thanks
P.A :-D

Hi childofpoultry, Welcome to A.P.F. All Mature Hens will still come into season (so to speak) but not all will cycle. Usually if they miss a year they lay the next.



Thanks
P.A :-D
