Hi all, Two questions for the experts: 1) My buff brahma rooster is mating my welsummer lady, but she hasn't even started to lay. She is exactly 8 months old today. Should they be separated, or is she old enough to put up with him? She does not squat, but he doesn't seem overly rough either. 2) I moved the flock to a nice new chicken palace, and my hen stopped laying. It's only been a few days, but I'd been getting an egg every day from a barred rock. Tonight is the first time they've gone into the coop at dusk on their own so I'm hoping she's settling in. How long can a hen "hold it" when adjusting? I know it takes time to make an egg but she should've had one "on deck" the day of the move. Just curious!
