I set up a house sitter to feed and water and collect eggs, same pattern as I usually do, went on vacation for 2 weeks, and have been only getting 1 egg a day for a week now. I checked with the house sitter and she collected between 9 and 13 eggs every day I was gone.
I've checked the perimeter for varmit entry or something of the like, checked their large yard, (in case they started laying outside, they not)
This is my first flock, and their age range is from 2ish years, to 9 months, mostly consisting of Araucana's and a few Welsommer's, I have 14 chickens in all... They have a very large indoor roost, and 16 nesting boxes, although they only lay in 2 or 3.
This is the first time they have all stopped laying. I have seen a few slow downs (like 2-4) eggs per day, but not this low. By the looks of the 1 egg i'm getting I would bet its from just one of them.
Anyone have any ideas for me to check, try, advise?
