I haven't gotten an egg since end of November. I have 8 RIRs, this is their second winter. They are from a breeder and started laying quite late (6-7 mos old). Always laid well, until the fall when I had a few broodies, then some started molting. I don't use light or heat, just let them go natural. Same feed as always: layer crumbles, oyster shell, plenty of water. Extra protein when they were molting. I know most chickens past their first winter take a break, but I didn't think it would be this long. Is this just how it goes? When do second year (and later) birds pick back up again?
