Is it normal for my Gingernut ranger to stop laying when it gets about - 10 degrees in winter. [ p.s i live in northern Ireland ]
why is my gingernut ranger not laying in winter
How old is the bird in question? Pullets are less effected by the onset of winter than hens, but many breeds are not prolific in the winter regardless if whether they are in their first or fourth laying cycle. Looks like "Gingernut Ranger" is simply a name used to market red sex links resulting from a RIRxLight Sussex - while that *should* result in a fairly hardy layer, it is no guarantee of winter production.
