I have 8 ameraucana and 9 buff orphington hens (plus 2 amer. and a buff rooster, a guinea hen and a guinea cock). I got the chicks from the feed store on 5/7 (I assume they hatched that week), so they're all 6+ months old. The guineas I got as keets a couple of weeks later from a coworker. The roosters are definitely mature (doing their thing), but I have yet to see an egg. Were they too late getting started, and the fall lighting has messed them up? They're not molting, other than one scissor-beaked hen. Should I give up hope until the spring?
