My girls molted in and around Sept. We haven't had any eggs from any of them since then. (even the ones who weren't yet molting) It was not cold in Sept or Oct but did get cold in November. Then it warmed again for most of Dec. Can anyone explain why they stopped laying so early, or if there is any way to encourage them to continue laying through the fall besides lamps? I don't like to force them to lay all winter, and would gladly do without eggs for all of Dec, Jan and Feb.because they are busy staying warm, but Sept and Oct? Oddly they usually begin to lay again in Feb which is the coldest month. Any ideas to keep they laying later into the fall?
