I am becoming frustrated with these hens. I have 12 that are 6 months and have been getting one egg a day for the past 3 weeks. one day I had 2. It only appears 3 of the hens are laying, because the others combs are still pale.
I forgot to mention for a couple of days they were flying over the fence and laying somewhere in the woods. They would only fly out at about the time they had been laying. I fix the escape issue and I am getting my one egg a day again.
This is the first time have not been raising hens without supplemental lighting and heat and it and such a small flock. This is also the first time I had production red.
At what age would you expect the majority of the flock mature with these condition. I am feeding 20% protein feed with oyster shell free choice.
I pray they more start laying soon.
