@Alaskan should I add a light to the coop to extend their "daylight"?
We are still waiting patiently and hoping it won't be long.
If you want eggs before Jan or Feb. then yes, you need to put in a light on a timer. I think you need a minimum of 12 hours of daylight.
I am new to Spitzhaubens but most of our other breeds lay without extra light but they slow down a lot during winter.
I think if any pullets are at point of lay when it starts getting really dark, then they are much more likely to not lay until spring.
And of course, some breeds are better winter layers than others.
Thought I would share a few pics.
Great looking birds.....but are they spitz? I didn't see any hats.
No somehow I managed to put my Augsbergers on the Spitzhaubens thread wow. LOL.
