Greetings fellow chicken folk! In september of this year I bought 16 hatchlings,a cross breed of black langshan and iowa blue with birchen pattern. Of those 16 i kept the only 3 hens and my favorite rooster and theyve been doing very well,the girls just started laying last week!! Now heres where the problem arises:yesterday i adopted 4 older hens around 1 or 2 yrs i presume, a barred rock, arauncana, rhode island red, and a white leghorn. Apparently the previous owner says theyre not laying because its too cold rite now and that theyll start in the spring which doesnt make any sense since my little ones are laying regularly. What could be the issue??? The leghorn seems to be molting but the others are active hardy and healthy. Could it be stress from moving the hens? (This is their 2nd rehoming this month) Thanks for your thoughts and concerns!
