    I have 3 hens that are about 7mos old. They have just graduated to the layer feed about 2 or 3 weeks ago, but we still have no eggs. I am curious as to weather it has to do more with the cold weather or the fact that they are only 7mos??? I've been told they wont lay over the winter now. This is depressing [​IMG] Any thoughts or suggestions??

    I wouldn't give up hope yet. I have two pullets that started laying this weekend. One is just over eight months old and the other is over nine months old. I do not use supplemental lighting. Sometimes they just take longer to mature. Hard to be patient, I know! [​IMG]
