Hi everyone! so nice to be back on here! Its been busy! I have 4 Wyandotts that I purchased when they were 5 weeks old in July. They live with my five other hens and one rooster two - mix breeds. My question is, it is now December and it has been 6 months or almost 30 weeks since I purchased them. When will they start laying? The weather had turned cold - 20/30s at night and 40's during the day. I just put a light in the coop to encourage more "daylight hours" just to help encourage them to start laying. I already lost my gorgeous EE who had yet to lay (a month older than my wyandotts) and Im wondering if she was egg bound... I would love any insight or tips/tricks to keep hens who (i think) are about to lay for the first time, to in fat LAY and egg even though the daylight hours have shortened and the temps have dropped, Thanks you sooooo much!
