I have 9 hens, 7 are laying. 2 Copper Marans are taking their sweet time (Are they typically late to POL?)
My swedish flower hen started laying about 3 weeks ago. Gang buster, egg every day in the nesting boxes. (The rest always lay in the nest boxes) She stopped laying about a week ago when I got rid of 3 roosters (1 of them was hers) she laid 1 egg under the roost that 1st day which made me think it was a surprise to her while roosting. She hasn't laid since that I'm aware of until today when she made a nest under the nesting box and laid a smaller then usual egg. I have no idea why she stopped laying. We have 14 nesting boxes and 2 ceramic eggs in the boxes. There all clean, some have shavings, some straw, some both. They free range so I was wondering if she started laying elsewhere but it snowed today so I kept them in the corp & run. Any thoughts and/or advise would be appreciated!
