I am sure this question has been asked a thousand times, but here it is again! lol. My girls are about 22 weeks old now and have not begun to lay any eggs yet. I have a wide variety of cold hardy breeds; Barred Rocks, Isa Browns, Amberlink, Reds, Ameraucana. We do live in the northern region, in lower Michigan. Yes, they did go through molting season, although I think that's done now? And yes, our daylight hours are shorter now, it is colder, averaging now around 30- 40 degrees, but with all that in consideration should I still expect them to lay any eggs yet? Do those factors delay the start of them laying eggs? They are eating fine, have plenty of feed, (organic starter feed still till they start laying) they have a heated water supply, get some treats and have a good size run. They all seem very happy and healthy. Am I just being impatient, but when should we expect them to start laying? I feel like we are like little children, checking every day under the Christmas tree to see if Santa has left us any new presents, ha ha. Thanks!!
