I bought red and black stars, buff orpingtons and Americaunas back in late April, first week of May. Two reds and one black are now laying daily, the reds having commenced laying at around the 20 week mark, the black within the last week. All of them are well over the 5 month mark. What is peoples' experience with start times for the other breeds? I'm still feeding all birds grower (15 %) until they all start laying, as I was told to do by my local feed store. Supplementing with scratch, compost and oyster shell (largely untouched). The three eggs I'm getting daily have super hard shells so it seems they're getting adequate calcium. For two weeks now also I've ben getting up and turning on a light for them when the sky starts to lighten; at that hour, it also helps them to see in getting down from the roost. Thoughts?
