I am a backyard chicken owner. Bought my first Rehomed 1 yr. old Amerucana. She has optimal conditions. Coop cleaned daily, laying food & treats. But never laid one egg. My Leghorn has laid regularly 6 days a week. I eventually sold the first Amerucana & got another 6 month old, that started laying day 1 for a few weeks & then stopped!??? And my leghorn continues to lay daily. So whats the problem? In California the weather is nice , the days are getting longer. I don't get it.
