    On your other thread, I already went through a few possibilities for why they aren't laying yet. Overcrowding stress, and the low protein feed are likely big contributors for your issue.

    [​IMG] Hello and Welcome to BYC.

    I don't use supplemental light, so someone with experience can correct me :) But I wonder if 18 hours is too much and maybe the duration of the light is a stress [​IMG]

    Junebuggena gave you very good reasons why your pullets are not laying. None of us have "miracles," up our sleeve. Since they have gotten off to a wrong start, they may not lay till spring
