    This will be my first winter with chickens. I have two barred rocks about two years old each. My questions is, how many eggs could I expect to get during the darkest, coldest part of winter? One every third day, one a week, what is your average? Thankers! [​IMG]

    I don't have barred rocks, but they're suppose to be decent winter layers.
    I have LF brahmas. They laid all thru their first winter, with no break. That's fairly common for first year birds. This year (their second winter) they took a break to molt and are quickly working back to laying as normal.
    I'm bumping this so hopefully you can get some responses from BR owners. You may want to add "barred rocks" somewhere in your thread title.

    Sorry. It's my first time too. I'm interested in what others have to say too! [​IMG]
