I bought two 15 week old red sex links at a chicken stock in October of this year. Later I added three 5-1/2 month old australorps. I got my first egg about two weeks ago, then every other day I'd get one until last week when I started getting two a day...every day! At first, I thought it was the australorps because they are older, but then I saw it was the reds on the nest. I don't have them under lights, and when they started laying I switched feed to Layena. I also feed them a little scratch, apple scraps, and I cut four holes in a pumpkin and keep it in their yard at all times for them to pick at. They are starting on their third pumpkin pickin' in a month's time! Tell me, somebody...why are my pullets laying every day in the darkest days of winter, when it goes against what everybody has told me. I don't expect the australorps to start laying until around the end of February '13 when they will be 8 1/2 months old, but who knows now. It is really cold and windy today and I already have today's two eggs cleaned and in the fridge.
