I just got 8 Orpingtons that I bought when will they start laying again after moving them
They need 14 hours of light for good laying, usually.
Also what are you feeding?
How old are they?
Laying mash 9 months
Oh that sounds fine then. You can try adding light in the coop in the morning to make 14 to 16 hours of light per day, or just wait for them to start up. Stress definitely can make them stop laying.
I don't know when they will start laying for you. Make sure they don't have worms or mites/lice too.
What time in the morning do you start adding light
You can leave the light on all night too .
Don't like the light thing because we got a lot of foxes around here in south ga
I got to lock my whole flock up every night its alot of hard work when you raise Orpingtons
I lock my flock up too. I have never had a Orpington before, I want one though.
