So I did it. I put light in the coop. And I started feeding cayenne pepper. GAH! Never thought I'd do either. I thought I could be patient. So much for that! But I have three Production Reds that are 28 weeks old that haven't laid yet. They have dark red combs, dark red faces, they squat when I come near... but its been that way for a month. My Red Sexlink that's a year and a half old stopped laying a few weeks ago. I wanted Rhode Island Reds for their winter laying abilities, and these are supposed to be just as good. But I can't afford to feed non-layers all winter. I need those eggs. So, any other tips to get them to decide to lay? Any old wives' tales? Rumors? Something weird that's worked for you?
