barred rocks


9 Years
Nov 4, 2014
just got 2 rocks about a month ago and no eggs yet (well 1 fart egg) there around 9 mos old . my other 3 reds are still laying during the cooler months. molting maybe? i do see some feathers hanging around but there bodies are full feathered and getting along with the other ladies.

do rocks molt at different times of the year?

Change of environment coupled with shortened day length have probably caused your rocks to stop laying. Day length is gradually increasing so hopefully they will soon resume proeduction.,
I bought 6 barred rock chicks in June. Started worrying about them not laying and boom. Got my first egg tonight. On a cold and rainy day at that.
Think it a combo....seasonal change and I see a bunch of feathers hanging around. ..suspect molting.
