Why aren't my chickens reproducing?

So I have a flock of 7 chickens. I have two buff orps, (hen and roo) two d'uccle bantams, (hen and roo) and three americanas. All my chickens are 1 year and 4 months old, yet the roos stopped mating and all the hens except the americanas stopped laying, with the americanas laying every other day. Is this normal, or should I be worried that they're reproductive systems are failing?



---Thanks,
Chickenboy

Seasons are changing days are shorter. I bet you have feathers showing up all over. Your birds are probably molting and it is completely normal this time of year.
