It may be their diet or that they are not getting enough daylight.

When they made chickens legal in my little town, this was my go to website to learn about them and see if I wanted to get chickens. I decided against it (the dog would not have approved).

I found the site quite helpful! My friend who has a hen house also likes this site:

Hope things turn around for the gals!

There are several factors as to why your hens not laying. Some breeds don't mature until 6 months. Sunlight is a factor and temperature must also be taken into account. Their diet is very important, while commercial feed is convenient, nothing beats some fresh greens.

Corn, commonly found in commercial feeds is a fattener but it does nothing to promote healthy egg production. Stress and coop accommodations are also common issues for the non-laying chicken.
