Hi, My name is Paul. I live in Northeast Mississippi. I have lived on a small farm most of my life. My family now lives in town so I'm out of my element right now. I have recently fixed my daughters a chicken pen in our back yard. We have a RIR rooster in with 1 Red Star, 2 Buff Opherton, and 4 similar hens (light red). The RIR and Buff had been laying fairly regular but since i introduced the new young hens we have gotten no eggs. This happens to be about time the time changed and days got shorter. Also temp has dropped as well. Have them a cover portion with light and shelter. know this is the intro section but any suggestions? also about to try incubating so eggs. I'm a AG teacher in high school and have a Lyon Incubator at school. Don't have a hatching manual but have read a few articles on-line and good advice would be appreciated.
