The waiting is no fun.... I'm at 16 weeks and 19 weeks for my 6 chickens and no eggs either sad.png

Hopefully it will be soon for both of us!!

If y'all are in the northern hemisphere......

.....it may take a bit longer of onset of lay to happen during these short days.

Unless you have set up supplemental lighting a couple months ago.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

So to be clear - my Morans started laying at 6 months, seemed to have a "light" molt shortly after, and have not layed since. Now it is November, shorter days etc. From what I am reading it is possible they will not lay again till Spring?

It has been 23 weeks for my chicks. I had a very aggressively sexual EE roster, he never stopped. He became soup, the flock of 26 has settled down a lot. Each rooster seems to have their own herem. But still No Eggs. Any ideas

X3, especially at this time of year with the shortening days.  My hens are at 26 weeks and I am still waiting for most of them to start laying.
