Hi. I'm wondering if my bantam pullets' point of lay will be delayed until spring (or until days get longer). I know laying hens slow down or stop laying during winter, so I'm wondering how pullets close to laying age are affected. My 12 girls are 18 week old bantams, different breeds: white wyandottes buff brahmas sebrights barred rocks easter eggers I haven't seen any signs of POL and my 8 month old d'uccle roo isn't interested in mating them yet (he's such a gentleman). I don't mind if they wait til spring to lay, I love having them around anyway, just wondering whether to expect their first eggs during the winter.
