My araucana chickens are about 14 weeks old. when will they start laying eggs.
do they lay eggs in the winter?
They will lay in the winter but in very reduced #'s. If they are "Araucana" from a breeder rather than many hatcheries then you will likely be looking at another 8 - 10 weeks before seeing first eggs. Check your other posts for other comments I made.
We incubated 13 eggs last year, 12 hatched. Two were Araucanas. The A's began laying earlier than the rest, one started at 16 weeks. But now she has stopped laying altogether. She seems healthy, no problems, but she stopped layiing when we got rid of the rooster. I've heard that A's can start laying earlier but can also be a difficult breed. I miss her beautiful blue eggs...
