Hello Chicken Lovers! We have six 25-ish week pullets, one of each of the following: Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Golden Laced Wyandotte and finally an Easter Egger. These chickens have been a great joy for us and of course we have anxiously awaited the arrival of eggs! The BR was the first to start laying, at about 19 weeks. The RIR started two weeks later, but the other four are still not laying. They have been on layer feed since they were 18 weeks, they have full access to fresh water, they receive fruits, veggies & other treats a couple times a week. I'm not really concerned and I don't necessarily think there is anything wrong, but I'm wondering if the fading daylight hours could be having an effect. Here in the lovely Pacific NW, we are down to just over 12 hours of daylight per day right now and I'm curious if that could be postponing egg production. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank You!
