Bought 8 chicks 2 weeks ago. They were almost bare when I got them (moulting), well now their feather's are almost back all the way I have only 1 chick that is laying. From what the previous owner told us was that they were moulting and show be laying in about 2 weeks, I have had 1 laying now for about 7days and nothing, nada from the other 7. I don't have any artifical light in the coop, could this be my problem that they are not getting the recommended 12-14 hours of daylight? Any help would be great. My girls are RIR's from what we were told. I read the article about the paleness in the beck, shanks, vent, eye rings, and ear lobes. From what I can tell all of them have pale shanks, I can't see the vents, the ear lobes have a red ring and a white center, the eye rings on most of them are pale and the becks I really can't tell since they are not solid yellow.
