I am a new BYC user and have been a proud chicken owner for 6 months now since June. My chickens were hatched in early June, and I am only certain of 4 of their breeds-2 ameraucanas, 1 Buff Orpington, and 1 barred rock-all hens. These four a purchased from a local feed store as chicks. I got seven other mixed breeds with one mother hen from my uncle, and out of the seven 4 are roo's. Now, in the past 6 months or so that I've had them, the mother hen from my uncle has laid two eggs, about 2 months apart, the others have not laid any eggs. Is it still too early? Could the winter season have anything to do with it? Their diet? They are kept in a coop, but about once a week I let them free range under my protection, so they do have a variety in their diet. Any info will be great!!
