I have several different breeds: 2 RIR's, 1 cochin, 1 Merlerault, 2 Silkie's and 2 OEGH/Silkie mixes. Now, I have three that do lay though two seemed to have stopped...or maybe all three. I have a RIR that just started laying and then yesterday, no eggs. My Cochin may have laid the other day then again, it could've been the RIR. And the Merlerault hasn't laid in several weeks. Out of the 2 Silkies and Game Hen Mixes... one is nearing because her face is reddish as is one of the Game Hen mixes...the other two aren't ready yet. So, am I going to have eggs this winter? Its already freezing cold already in October and I do have a heating lamp in the coop, I have to winterize the coop-(putting cardboard in it for insulation)- so its warm which I'm going to be doing on Sunday along with extending the coop.
