I have a small flock of 8 chickens. Their egg laying was finally up to an average of 5 a day. I left them for two weeks. The first week they were in their pen the whole time (two little dogs visiting). The second week they were allowed to free range again but they were quiet, hid all day. By the middle of week 1 they had stopped laying ands there have been no eggs since,. I know there is a possibility they are laying elsewhere. I haven't found it or heard any egg calls. Why in the world would all 8 of them have stopped laying? Too much corn trea from the caregivers? They got spooked? Any ideas an what should I do now?
