Ok..I've had my Ameraucanas since summertime last year...and STILL not a single egg. I am not sure if this breed is slow to mature or if I'm doing something wrong, but I AM getting frustrated. They seem to be mature and happy- they get plenty of food and get to free range all day. My hubby is getting annoyed that we keep pouring food down their throats and STILL haven;t gotten a single egg. Argh! Anyone know if Ameraucanas are slower to mature?
