Ok y'all. I'm at a loss... For the last 2 weeks my ladies egg production has plummeted! I have 8 (out of 16) girls that are around a year old. We normally get 5-7 eggs a day. We are lucky if we get any right now. There was not a single egg yesterday. It's like they all got together and decided to go on strike. I think a couple may be molting, but definitely not all of them. Any ideas what could have caused the extreme change and what to do about it. For the first time since they started laying we don't have a single egg in the fridge! If I have to go to buy store eggs when I have 16 birds I'm gonna lose it.
is there anything spooking them? maybe a new cat in the area? or did something change, changes can cause a temporary stop in egg laying?
If you were closeer I would sell you some duck eggs.
If anyone else is close to Bargersville and wants duck eggs, please let me know.
