Are Welsummers good winter layers?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have wellie named CoCo? She is seven months, seems to be happy and healthy. Always laid good size eggs in the nesting box.

Since the cold temps started in Mid November, she has not laid any eggs. Is this typical of Welsummers?

I physically checked for any bulges or hiding places.

Just wanted to if anyone else is having the same issue.

Wellsummers are good winter layers. Your issue is day length vis-à-vis night rather than cold.

Thanks for the response.

If there is no harm, I will let it runs its course naturally.

Happy Holidays

In my personal experience, Welsummers are not on the same level as Sex Links or Australorps as winter layers, but are still decent winter layers.
