The reasons can be many ... I know that is not much help but it is true.

I need a little more info ... 1) what kind of chickens do you have. 2) Are they free range or in a coop. 3) What kind of feed do you use.

(Just for starters)

Time change messes up their laying, and some just start later. My Ameraucana was 8 months before she laid her first egg. Yours will probably start any day. Make sure you have a "fake" egg in the nest box so they know to associate that as being the place to lay their egg. Plastic egg (not one that breaks apart) works or I have used a white golfball since that's what I had laying around. (Actually my dog found it somewhere and I snatched it from her.) ;) Worked too!
