i have 12 4-6 month old chickns and im getting 7 eggs a day when should they all be laying
There are so many variables. I.E. what breeds (some lay early, some lay late), and then there's the factor that chickens are individuals, even within a breed. I didn't expect one of my Light Brahmas (a late bloomer breed) to be my first layer. She laid her first egg on August 31; Buffy (the last of ten to lay) laid her first egg about 6 weeks later.
I have 2 araucaunas 2newhampshire red 4 black sexlink 2 gold sex link and 2 blue andalusion
No guarantees but at this time of year if you add light to go to 12 or so hours total light a day I'll bet all that are old enough will kick in after 2 weeks. The 4 monthers will be longer. I like them to wait till after 20 weeks.
