Sometimes this time of year will slow down the beginning of laying, especially in slower maturing breeds like Orpingtons, most will usually begin laying by six month, some will take eight or nine months, decreasing daylight and energy needed for staying warm are factors.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

thank you for the quick response.  That makes, total sense.   I guess my ADD gets the better of me.  What a surprise, mother nature will produce when SHE ( and the ladies) are ready. 

Blessings.

It's the harness and leashes...they are ticked off at you!!

 

Hahaha!! Just kidding, poking fun at your avatar.

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!!!
