    What is going on with my girls?? Over 3 weeks and no eggs. They slowed down when the Arizona hot summer was here but its beautiful weather now.
    I have heard of putting golf balls in their nest boxes to remind them that they have a job to do. What's your suggestion??

    We have 8 chickens and ducks, they have not layed in over 3 weeks. I went through this last year too with the ducks at this same time. But they got back to in the spring from what I remember.

    What i did with my chickens in put plastic easter eggs in their nesting boxes. I happened to have the right colored eggs [​IMG] They tend to slow down in weather changes, and when they get used to the weather they will lay more. Also, make sure thier nesting boxes are full of clean straw or bedding. Good luck! [​IMG]
