I have a June '18 hatch of 7 different breeds, now nearing 6 months old. There are two expected early maturing: an Egyptian Fayoumis and an Ancona. They all free range with the one rooster & 6 hens hatched 2016 and 3 hens hatched 2017 - so a very mixed-age flock. The older ones all went through a pretty heavy molt, quit laying & no color to their combs/wattles yet. No eggs since the first week of November. I saw the rooster breeding the E.F. today but I've not seen any eggs in the nests. All nests have a fake egg. Will the pullets squat for a while before egg production or do I need to start looking for eggs in the wild? I'm trying this New Chicks every year so I get pullets starting to lay when the elders need a winter break. Those store eggs are awful!!!
