Purchased six 1yr old, supposably laying, two moths ago. Purchased two Ameraucana at same time. The Ameraucanas are producing an egg every other day. The Buffs --NOTHING! They have a new coop, a 10x10 yard and are allowed to free range. We are providing recommended laying pellets with minerals. There appears to be a fair amount of feathers in their yard but they show no bald spots. How long should I wait before sentencing them to the "cooler"? They are eating way too much food to not be feeding our family! I've read about "new home" stress but shouldn't that have passed by now? Please any insight is appreciated.
