Hi! I live in the Philadelphia area. Since my pullets are 10 weeks old now (I got my girls late in June) and I do not plan on doing supplemental lighting, when should I expect my first egg? I didn't figure I'd get one until the spring, but someone told me that I could get eggs around Halloween. Is that's based on supplemental lighting? Should I still put a nest box in my coop, just in case someone decides to lay an errant egg? I've got a Buff Orpington, a Speckled Sussex, a Dominique, and 2 Easter Egger's. Thanks!
