Hi there, I have searched lots of forums but couldn't really find a satisfactory answer. I got 4 hens early September (our spring) and they were considered at "point of lay". As it was unusually cold they took their time and finally started laying 5 weeks later. Ever since 3 of them lay daily except one. She was always a bit smaller and she was always bullied by the others. She would lay as well, also 2 eggs without shell. Now for a few weeks, she hasn't laid at all. I've been observing her (feeding her on the side as I thought she may not get enough as the others are mean to her). She doesn't display any symptoms that would indicate lodged eggs. Once, I examined her and felt an egg inside, massaged her, put a bit of oil in her and she laid an egg the next day, since then (1 week) nothing again. She looks healthy, acts healthy, no sitting around, shows a little less interest in food but eats and drinks. Her comb is as red as the others (atm, even a bit darker red) but it is still a bit smaller than the others. I examined her today, but no egg inside. All hens are quite friendly (ISA BROWNS), calm and have plenty of room in their coop, I also let them out daily, to roam in a large area. There is seemingly no stress around, other than the heat atm, but they can keep cool under a large bush. Really don't know what to do anymore. They have plenty to eat, I sprout grain for them, they also get pellets, herbs, left overs, lots of green and water (with a bit of vinegar). I ensure their nests are clean and separate (they got 4 nests) but they all lay mostly into the same one. I would really appreciate responses as I can't think of anything else, thanks already!
