I am new to raising chickens as wells as to this site. I have a BO that I got the first of June and she was between one to two months old at that time. It is now the end of November and I have yet to get an egg out of her. I also have another BO and two Lavender Orpingtons that I got in mid July and these were also between one and two months old and are not laying yet. Any reason of why they are not laying yet? I was letting them out in the morning and they free ranged until th evening. I thought maybe they were laying outside of the coop. So I started keeping them in the coop and not letting them free range except a few days in the week in the afternoon. Any suggestions?
I had 4 hatchery buff pullets, two were laying right at 6 months but the other two had not started yet. (lost the layers to a dog attack). This time of year the shorter days will factor in. If they are not laying by now, then they will probably wait until spring when the days get longer.
would artifical light make them start laying if light is the problem?
