But I want to quit obsessing if it isnt happening! I have 5-6 month old chickens. 2 easter eggers(or amerucanas?), 1 barred rock, and a cochin. They all are swirlin around my big buff orpington rooster. They have the best life. Entire access to my back yard, and now garden, plenty of food-like yummy table scraps, and a nice clean and warm coop. My rooster is super nice and just let's them boss him around, he brings them in every night and shares snacks. I read this site all the time, and I feel like I am doing everything right. Considering the weather has went from summer to soak to now 27 at night all in a month, will that affect their egg-laying? Should I just wait until spring to expect any eggs? I live in Souther Pines, NC. My egg cartons keep piling up so high I can make a coop out of them!! haha If anyone knows about cold weather and new egg layers, let me know!!
