My hens should be laying...but they're not! - Page 3

Eave ventilation is good....I was hoping those little eaves were open<thumbsup>!

Some gable vents would supplement those nicely in winter.

 

Do your birds go out in the snow?

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!!!

They do go out in the snow....sorta! lol! They will only go out in it if I shovel a section/path for them so they can see the ground. Which I do, because I like when they are outside getting fresh air.

Haha! Yeah, I shovel part of the run too...partly to access the mesh roof in case of snow load and partially so they will get out and move around....otherwise it's looooong winter cooped up.

Well, I certainly do understand your frustration. You have provided them a lovely home and good care, yet no eegs. 

I think you are right to just give it a bit more time and a few minor tweeks. I sure don't see any glaring problems. 

 

Best of luck to you... and your hens!!!
