Quote:My EEs always seem to start in good time, but the wheaten ameraucanas,,,,ugh! I have had them go 9 months or more! Right now most of my birds are moulting, but the EEs & OEs are still plugging along. And the cochins, seen as how they were broody all spring and summer, are laying well now. I'm betting you'll get a terra cotta speckled egg from the single combed girl. Hope they start up for you soon. Sometimes if they don't start by Sept/Oct, they will wait til the solstice and suddenly you're buried in eggs. Are you talking Summer Solstice next June? or Winter Solstice in December? December. Its the strangest thing- they seem to know that the days start to get longer again, even though its just by minutes. Last year I had one old cochin laying through Novenmber and December, then the day after the solstice- boom! Talk about an accurate internal clock!
