    My girls are 22 weeks old now. They haven't started laying yet. With cold weather coming up won't that keep them from laying? Do I need to keep feeding starter or change to something else? They are free ranging about half a day now because of my work schedule. Any suggestions.

    I think at that age I still had one that wasn't laying, of my four, and I was converting to layer feed... using up what I had left of grow... made sure that calcium and grit were available... mine did great and still are.

    we switched ours to organic layer about a month to six weeks after we got the chicks. yours should start laying any day now. Sometimes it seems like they are never gonna start laying, doesn't it?
