    My hens quit laying 3 weeks ago. Aside from the heat and possibly molting, what the heck could keep them from laying this long? By the way, I have performed a cavity search around the perimeter for "hidden eggs", nothing found [​IMG]

    2 Chochins, 3 Americaunas, legorn, pheonix, 10 RIR pullets. HELP

    It really probably is the heat. I have been giving any extra protein at night and sticking with greens, squashes and such during the day. I put ice in the water and a fan in the coop. I still get some eggs but not as many as I was getting. We had one cool day this week and I got 10 eggs. Today I get 2 and one of them is TINY. Just rough weather.

    You might also check for mites. Mine got em and that slowed down production until they all were treated.
