    I have 4 chickens, two are green egg layers and 2 are brown egg layers. They all molted this spring but the green egg layers have not laid an egg since.

    They have a light on them and they are only ~1.5 year old. The brown layers are doing fine as far as I can tell. However they seem to be getting larger bloody spots in the eggs (dunno if this is related)

    If anyone has any idea what is going on, I would appreciate it.

    maybe if the light is on constantly, they are too stressed to lay ~ or perhaps they aren't being fed enough water or layer feed, or oyster shell.

    What do you feed them? How long is the light on for them? How big is the space they live in? Do they have access to free-ranging? ( are they hiding their eggs?)
