I've got 3 girls (a barred rock, orphington, and amerecuna) that are now 20 weeks old. None have laid an egg yet. I've read on this site that hens need 14 hours of daylight in order to lay eggs. I've also read the various pros and cons of adding artificial light and have decided not to add any. We are now getting about 11 hours of daylight daily and that will continue to decline. Does that mean they probably won't lay till next spring when the daylight hours increase? Or, can I expect an egg or two this fall? Thanks.
