Well I have laying Lavender Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, RIRs, and Ameracaunas. They have been laying for a couple months. I had two Lavender Orpington Roos, but I got rid of one. I have seen the Ol boy try to mate with the hens, but they tuck and run every time. None of the hens squat and stay still for him. Do they know it's too cold to have babies now so they are just waiting for warmer weather? I'm wanting to let some go broody in the spring but I need the eggs to be fertilized lol.
