I need some advise. Got my first ever chicks in April. I have 8 chickens - oldest are 27 weeks: 2 - RIR; 1 molted java; 1 BR, 3 at 24 or 25 weeks - buckeyes; and a 23 or 24 week old Americanas. None are laying yet. They have a nice coop, a big fenced yard (sides and top - we have many pedators). I recently had my husband put in a red heat lamp. I live in a cold area (already 22 degrees F at 6am, known to get to -16 in the winter). They also have straw inside the coop. I open their coop around 6:30am and close it at sunset. 1) Should we put up another light on a timer to extend daylight time? sunrise around 7am; sunset around 7pm. 2) Should they start laying soon? 3) What else am I missing? Thanks, in advance, for you help.
