    I have heard that araucanas do lay year around. I didnt know if I should do anything special for them like feed, something in the chicken pen or what? Since the winter months are here and it is starting to get cold just thought I would see if anyone had any ideas or help [​IMG]

    MY Leghorn was hatched on Memorial Day and she started laying at the beginning of November...she laid all the way through the winter of her first year. But Leghorns are a "light" breed, and Aracaunas are a "heavy" breed so they mature later.
