    I live in N.E. Tennessee
    I have a mixture of hens, I got them in May of this year, the Australorp started laying about a month ago, followed by the Lace Winged Wyandotte, I have yet to get any eggs from the Speckled Sussex or the Barred Rock, the weather is like a roller coaster here in East Tennessee, It has gotten as low as 26 at night and during the day 50's-60's. The weather hasnt slowed down the hens that are laying but have yet to get any from the others. Is there still hope the others will lay before the spring?

    How old are they? They will slow down in winter but may still lay a few.

    they are around 6 mos, two are producing an egg each day but the other 3 just look into the nesting box and say "wow, nice eggs"
