I have a group of chickens that were all hatched early this year. At around four months old, they were like normal birds that age--cockerels crowing their heads off, pullets starting to turn pinker in the combs and scratching around in the nest boxes a lot. Within the last month or two, though, I have noticed something. The cockerels have crowed less and less, and now are not crowing at all. They have also given up mating with the females. The pullets are ignoring the nest boxes, and have not laid anything at all. Some lost their nice red faces and went back to sort of a dull lavender-ish pink. Others have stayed red but are still not laying or interested in the nests. They are now pushing 6 1/2 to 7 months old! They otherwise look healthy, are active and eating and alert. I have not changed anything I am doing. What's going on?
