I have 5 2 year old RiR, and 3 almost 1 year old buff orpington. The 5 RiR havent layed since around Oct when they started molting. I thought after they stopped molting (which they seem to have finished) they would start laying again. I only get eggs from the 3 buff orpington chickens. Any tricks to get the engines going again? I read people swear by peppers or spicy food but that didnt seem to work. They already have a light in the house to increase daylight hours. They're getting a lot of good nutrition, water and calcium to support egg laying but it just seems like they wanna be on vacation until it warms up then they'll start again.
