Hoping someone can provide some insight to our issue! We have 3 hens, 2 - 18 mo. old and 1 - 6 mo. old. One of the 18 month old girls has only laid 2 eggs in the 2 1/2 months we've had her - the other two are laying pretty much daily. They get the same feed and treats, exercise, etc... Multiple times a day she'll go into the nesting box and make noises like she's laying but no eggs. She'll even squat down on the deck or in the yard while free-ranging and pump her tail like she's trying to lay. We suspected she was egg bound but she seems otherwise perfectly happy and healthy and we can't feel anything on her rear end that would suggest that. When they came to us both 18-mo olds were molting - the other hen's feathers have mostly grown back but the non-layer still has a bald patch on her back that seems a little dry. My husband has suggested she's going through "henopause", though we have no real reason to believe she's older than we were told! Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!
