My gold laced wyandottes should be starting to lay around Thanksgiving, they are currently 12 weeks old. We live in north central Wisconsin and the nights are already getting chilly, and all my birds are in molt right now. My question is, with the cold creeping in, will that slow down the maturing process meaning I won't have eggs till say Christmas? I would really like to make my holiday meals/baking with fresh eggs for my family gatherings. This is my first flock, so bear with me.
