    My chickens have slowed down production to ONE EGG a day!!!:hit I have 3 buffs and 3 Black stars and all are 2 1/2 years old. Last summer I would get 6 a day! I don't think any are molting and I'm sure there aren't any hidden nests. Help?:fl

    You have to keep in mind that production is best in the first two years.

    Could a pest eating their eggs? Are they eating their eggs? What are you feeding them?

    They have a pretty high tech coop where no critters can get in. I haven't seen any yolk or shells in the hay but I will look out for that. As for feeding, I use a Hardy Hen egg layer feed
