Q1 We got 4 chooks that we were told were 12 weeks old on 2nd October so they would now be approximately 25 weeks and they still aren't laying, does anyone have any idea when I should expect them to start laying.

Q2 We had a broody hen so we got her a fertilised egg to hatch, this has now hatched just curious as to how long it will be before she starts laying again.

Keep telling them that they need to stop free loading lol!

What kind (breed) of chooks are they? Some breeds are quicker to start than others. I'm sure your girls will begin producing at some point though :) I wouldn't be worried at this point.

Is your hen caring for the chick? If so, she won't start laying again for maybe 6 weeks or so (possibly sooner...depends on the hen).
