Two of my 5 chickens are molting, we are heading toward winter (shorter days) and only my Araucana is the only chicken providing an egg. Is it true that my chickens are not going to start laying eggs until spring when the days get longer? They are on their second year and they have food and water all day long while they free-range. I am in the city so my backyard is small, so I know they are not laying their eggs somewhere else. Spring seems like a long, long time.
