Reminds me of a song:

We had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
We had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
My wife said, "honey, we're losin' money
Because our chickens, no eggs will they lay."

One day a rooster flew into the yard
And caught those chickens just a little off guard.
They're laying eggs now, just like they used to,
Ever since that rooster, flew into our yard.

Well there you go. The white hens are not "laying hens" they are "Pot pie hens".

My dad's chickens always took the winter off. They started laying again in the Spring.

As for those that won't ever lay, get a rooster, it'll encourage them.

They have been stressed since Septmeber?

I was told to try feeding them laying mash...but that doesnt seem to work either.

I guess you have spastic chickens antisipating a hard winter :shrug:

do you play soothing music to them? Do they have plenty of food and ice free water?
Shoothing music? Are you being serious?...or just being funny?

Remember when we were kids, Pop used to keep the radio on for the hogs? He swore it kept them calm.
