They don't lay constantly like chooks do, I find mine have a laying season for a bit at the end of winter, and then another lot maybe through summer. they seem to lay for about a month, then sit if they're feeling like it, then stop for a while.

Hi, hopefully next year your birds will lay for about 3/4 months. Keep taking the eggs away each day and this will prevent them trying to go broody. Hope your youngsters are doing well.
