Don't worry; this isn't a "when will my pullets lay??" question. It's similar, though. I have two EE's, about 10 months old now. One started laying at the end of July, the other started early September. Now, here's my question. The one that started stopped for the winter quite early, late September to early November. The other laid for about another month, then also stopped. I'm not exactly sure because I thought then when they stopped, it would be a gradual decline leading to a stop. (One hen laying an egg a day, then an egg every two days, then every three, then none.) As I soon learned, that was not the case! They followed their normal schedule, then just stopped. Note that I do not supplement lighting. Also, I live in California, if that helps any with calculating daylight hours. So my question is, anyone have estimates for when they will start again in the spring? I know it has to do with how many hours of sunlight there is. I'm thinking maybe late February for one and early April for the other, about? Not really sure. ETA: I forgot to mention something. The girl who stopped laying first molted around Thanksgiving, the other hen is in molt right now. February 2, 2012: One has laid! Picture and story down below. Will be sure to update when the other starts!
