Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by chicken ridl, Dec 10, 2009.
My ameraucanas are 8 months old. I have 6 hens and I only get 1 or 2 eggs a day. Why so little?
Low lighting conditions. It's the time of year that egg production naturally goes down. It'll pick up in the spring.
My other girls are still doing ok.
I have 28 barred rocks and I am getting 13-16 eggs a day from them.
I have 5 legg horns and I am getting 4-5 from them.
I am disapointed in the amerucanas.
I don't have Ameraucanas because when I first purchased my chicks I was told that Ameraucanas did not lay well during the winter. I don't know if this is true, but it was what i was told and is the reason I don't have any now. Maybe some experts will chime in and tell us more definitively.
We put in a light in the coop and keep it on for a few extra hours. Yesterday I got 13 out of 15 hens. Its my average.
Well I was thinking about putting in a white light on a timer I will do that.
Since I just finished putting all kinds of wire and outlets in for other stuff.
Thanks everyone for the quick answers.
