They haven't produced a single egg yet. They are now six months old. Their tail feathers haven't turned up yet, and their combs are still "pullet" small. The RIR's are middle of the pecking order. Granted daylight is shorter, but I was hoping they wouldn't wait until march. They aren't shy with the feed either! Aside from those two, everyone is happy & laying, but for 1 aussie who shut down for the winter, and my sussex who is still contemplating resumption after molting.
