June 20th, we bought day old chicks to add to our group. 2 buffs, 2 silver laced, 2 sussex, 2 ancona, 2 brahmas, 2 Columbian Wyandottes, 1 Americona. It's now mid December and they haven't started laying. We use a light, we feed twice a day. We use a cookie tin heater for water as we live in Central Pa. The run is wrapped in heavy plastic to keep the snow and wind off them so they come out of the coop. Our 6 older chickens have slowed down to 1 or 2 eggs a day. We thought we would start getting eggs from the new ones by now. Any thoughts or experiences with this? We've been told that if they haven't started by now, they may not start to after winter, I hope that's not the case.
