I had 9 hens going strong for the past month. Then this last Saturday my Banty Cochin decided she wanted to be a mama... so obviously she's not laying. BUT the rest seem to have joined in on the behaivior, I've only goten 1 egg since Saturday and it's from my black leghorn. What went wrong? I don't see alot of feathers in the coop... not molting, haven't changed their food, they have all the oyster shell they could need and more avail at free choice. All look very healthy, perky fiending for their raisins like always, no puss, buggers, respitory problems, just my regular happy chicken family... minus the EGGS. The weather DID get a bit nicer as in this week we have had lows in the mid to high 20s instead of the single digits... with highs in the mid to high 40s instead of the low 30s. And then there's the "Murphys law" I guess you could take into concideration, someone just asked if I could sell them 2 18 packs of eggs everyweek... go figure So chicken friends... any ideas why my girls have all at the same time have taken a vacation and decided not to "pay their rent?"
