First-time layers sometimes start in the middle of winter (General Discussion)

They may continue to lay for several months, or they may lay briefly and then start up again later in the spring. Most of the time this seems to be a one-time thing, and they will start to lay in the spring (anytime from March-May) when the next year rolls around.

Do you keep their pen/coop well lit, or does their diet consist of a very high protein feed? If so, those factors could have something to do with their early laying.
