    My chickens are going to turn 20 weeks in December. Are they going to lay very few eggs or no eggs at all?

    Since it is getting colder out and the days getting shorter it may take them longer to start laying eggs. You will know they are ready to lay when their combs are red and they do the submissive squat.
