We have 11 young hens (and one young roo). The youngest was hatched in October, the oldest is less than 2 years. We get between 1 and 3 eggs a day. We live in Oregon, so it is cool and dreary here, They stopped laying in December when we got a storm. Since then I have adjusted the flock a bit, selling a few older hens, and buying two pullets. They have an outside run 8x24 ft and the coop is a converted tuffshed. The shed was 8x10 and feed goes in the front 3.5 feet and chickens have the back 6.5 feet. We put in a window, there is insulation, plenty of roosting space and 3 nesting boxes. We are feeding layer pellets, available at all times. I toss out oystershells into the run whenever they use or burry them. WHY?? Are we not getting more eggs??!! Am I expecting to be getting eggs too early in the year? Am I doing something wrong? I don't really want to put a light in the coop, I would think they have enough, the window is on the south side. They are: Buff Orph Black Austro Black Star Silver Wynadot 2 Barnevelders 2 RiReds speckeled don't know fat white don't know Oct chick of fat white don't know. I know some get eggs all winter, but for those that took a few months off, when do they really pick up again?? Thanks for any ideas.
