I have two hens that I have had for almost 5 months. They were 8-12wks when I got them. They haven't laid a single egg. They are on the same feed as my Delaware hen who lays a big egg every day. They don't look or act like roosters, what the heck is going on?

They were free ranging for a long time but I have had predators so they have stayed in their mobile coop/tractor for almost a week now. No secret spots in there. I will continue to wait as patiently as possible. :l a neighbors dog got all but one of my laying hens so I'm anxious for the last two young hens to start laying. One egg per day isn't enough for my family of 3, but I want to solve this dog problem before adding to the flock and free ranging again.

What breed are they? My polish didn't lay until ~ 48 weeks and my EE at ~36 weeks. My only early one was the RIR. I know...it is hard to be patient.
