I raised two batches of straight-run chicks this year. A mix of 18 (EE, blue and black orps, blue and black marans) hatched mid-April, and a mix of 14 (turkens) hatched end of May. That puts the first batch around 6.5 months old, and the turkens around 5.5 months if I'm not mistaken? In Late September I got my first little eggs, started getting 0-3 per day, very sporadically. Then sometime in late September the eggs stopped and I haven't gotten any since. Now, I know there are many factors; temps, light, weather, molt, food, stress, etc. They're not molting. They've been on 16% lay pellets, with some scratch and some 20% available since I got the first eggs. They also free range all day every day and get fruit and veg scraps and whole squash. Temps are unseasonably warm in the 50s-70s, no snow yet, no freezes, just lots of rain. I've got a light coming on in the morning to give 14hrs daylight. Everything seems like they should be happy enough. I've thought maybe they're laying on the property somewhere, but 1. I just haven't found any eggs anywhere and 2. I've locked them up a few days at a time when I've gone away and still didn't get any eggs, so I'm not inclined to think that's the problem. So I was thinking: Maybe having too many roo's around is added stress? I've yet to see any of the cockerels bother the pullets, or fight for that matter, and maybe I'm over thinking this, but could the girls be maturing slower with too much male pressure? I've got 11 cockerels to 18 hens at the moment. Culling 7 more cockerels is on my to-do list, but for now they're all mingling. Thoughts?
