My first batch of chickens was born in May, and they continued laying through their first winter (without added light), which I understand is typical. I bought some pullets this winter, some born in July, some in August. The July pullets just started laying, but not those born in August. I'm sure they will be starting up soon. My question is this: if a pullet was too young to start laying in its first winter, does it lay through the second winter, or should I expect to see them molting by then? Or is this more a question of breed? Not that it really matters to me if they lay next winter or not. I am just curious about what to expect, since I have never had summer-born pullets.
