22 Weeks Old Layers Not Laying Yet by Excelboi(m): 11:07am On Dec 12, 2018
Hello people, Please my 86 layer birds have not start dropping eggs and tomorrow will make it exactly 22 weeks old of there age. I belive that by 18 weeks they should start laying. I groom them right from Day old Upto this stage and I gave them necessary vaccine and not a single one have dropped any egg. I'm beginning to get worried as I believe they are due. Any help will be appreciated so others can learn too. cry

At 17 weeks, I switched to a formulation prepared by self called pre layers feed recommended by an expert in layers and they ate that for like 3 weeks before it was advised to swtich back to grower pending when they will start dropping. The vaccines given to them so far its Lasota, gomboro, deworm and multivitamin... I don't know the precise weeks they were administered. They once had Newcastle disease that affected them in their neck and it was controlled. They are on the top feed, and I use them deep litter system.
They are currently feeding on Livestock Feeds. 1st pix is Week 17, 2nd pix is Week 20.

First of all.
Wow first day in NL and I got FTC.
Now your chickens seem to lack protein, I suggest you feed them more of that and observe them for the time being.
But don't over do it, 20-25grams should be enough.

First of all, what feed are you giving them and what quantity?

Let’s have the following info:

The amount of feed are you giving?
What’s the breed?
How much light being given?
Deep litter or caged raised?
What vaccines have you administered?
Were they ravaged by IBD at an earlier time?
What antibiotics have you administered?
What’s their current weight?

Pullets will never come into their laying phase if they’ve not hit the target weight of 1.5kg. Bear this in mind.

Furnish us with the above listed info.

Don't mind above posts. Call your supplier ascertain if any of his customers has the same problem as you. It may be breed or hatchery related. Then I hope you never gave them any Sulphur containing drug. What feed are they on now?

They will start dropping any moment from now. It happens sometimes. Same thing happened to our last laying stocks. Started dropping about 23weeks plus. Might be as a result of the feed (Type, Quality or Quantity) they were fed in the course of the brooding and grooming. Rationing not enough feeds for them in the course of raising them might cause some weeks setback before they start dropping. Some environmental factors might set in as well.
