I have 14 hens, 6 of them are 8 months old and the rest are 7 months old... I kept them penned until a month or so ago, now I let them out of the morning and put back up in the evening. I was getting 7-8 eggs a day and now I only get 2-3 a day....I have looked everywhere to see if they are laying somewhere else but have been unlucky at finding any nesting spots..any stray eggs..... The drop in egg count started about 6 days back.....could there be a reason for this? do I need to look harder?? Just don't know what to think about this as I am a first timer to raising chickens.....any help? suggestions? and with 14 chickens shouldn't I at least get an egg a day per hen anyways and this age???
