All of our hens have quit laying. I mean, we had a very cold spell in late September, early October, and a lot of them were molting, so I wasn't surprised, then. But now we have had a week or more anyway of beautiful Indian summer weather and before that the weather moderated for a couple of weeks, you'd think at least some would be laying. And we had a longer period of daylight savings time, and a lot of sunshine. We have never had them quit laying this early in the year, usually they slow down and then stop in December. They are predicting a very cold late November and early December here, I wonder if the chickens can sense this? They have been on layer feed for a month (they are free range). We don't believe in using artficial light to extend laying. Is anyone else experiencing this? I just used up the last of our eggs, and dread buying them at the store! :| Our hens seem to lay based on temperature as much as light as one warm fall and December a few years ago, they bombarded us with eggs all the way through December! They are also mixed ages, so, as I said, at least some should be laying.
