I recently added 5 bared rocks to my flock of 2 Rhode Island Reds who had been giving me 1.8 eggs a day. I am now two weeks later getting only 3.5 eggs a day. I know that they would be off for a little while, but how long will they be off? My Reds in the past had started laying in different areas from time to time and I'd have to find the nest to remove the eggs before they'd go back to laying in the boxes. So could they all be laying eggs off somewhere and I just need to look for them? They are allowed to range all over the area, we have about 2 acres of area with trees and two out buildings that they could hide eggs in. How long before I start getting concerned about the lack of eggs?
