I am very new to having chickens. I bought Buffs with a friend. He is only feeding his scratch. I told him that might be why they are not laying. I am feeding mine a mixture of laying mash, scratch and wild bird conditioning which is high in protein. Mine are not laying either but they have been moved 3x to the current house. I house full grown banty pair, 4-month old hen and rooster, and over 1-year old hen and 4 1-year old guineas. The banty was laying but stopped when she came to her new home. I mix scratch because my guinea supplier said to do so in winter. Any comments or suggestions? Oh, I added a FT light; now I'm wondering if I should just turn it on for a couple of hours before daybreak. However, I may not have the option as it is plugged in with the coup water heater. Thank you for input.
