Help Please...I don't know what's going on with my girls??? The four of them are big healthy looking birds they're getting a layer feed everyday that they help themselves from an automatic feeder & fresh water every second day plus various table scraps from left over dinners (meat, fish, veges etc) then they get let out in the afternoon to free range for 3 or 4 hours then they put themselves to bed. BUT! Only 1 is laying 1 egg a day, it's winter here in New Zealand but it's nothing compared to the freezing temps in the U.S, ours are at its coldest about 7 degrees only at night no snow and only 1 frost so far. During the day we are still getting temps of around 12 to 15 degrees sometimes warmer. Does winter have anything to do with them not laying? Out of the 3 girls that aren't laying 2 of them use to lay and they would (bow down to me) at the time but they stopped when it got cooler. The one that's laying now has a swollen red comb and the three that aren't have small combs that aren't bright red anymore & ive lost their respect... Nobodies bowing down to me anymore. Does anyone have any answers? Sorry for writing a small novel.
