Just looking for some sympathy from some chicken people. I have a flock of 12. ONE is a lovely ancona of laying age, but she molted a few weeks ago and has not resumed laying. Darn her! We loved her pretty, small white eggs. She was the sole survivor of a fox slaughter. She laid eggs for about 2 months before started molting. 5 are March babies. 2 of them are bramas that are like snowy beachballs! and 3 EEs. ANY DAY NOW, chickens. No squatting and no egg song, though. We keep thinking SEPTEMBER. Their faces are red and they LOOK big enough to lay. I have 4 that are maybe 14 weeks old. 2 tiny bantams with no sign of eggs. One maran/EE cross with no sign and one polish with no signs at all. We hope to have eggs from them in November? Until last week, I thought we had one polish rooster. He's got a relatively quiet crow and can't see well- he's been lovely to the kids and no very roo-ey yet. But, the other day, I heard a second crow and realized that my frizzle pullet is a roo. Darn it! So, here I am with TWELVE chickens and no eggs. If all goes as planned, we'll have 10 eggs a day by December. But last year, NO ONE gave any eggs all winter. We're considering supplementing light this year. Free loaders! Thanks for the vent.
