I have four hens and one rooster, a goose, and a gander. My goose has been laying eggs like crazy even though it is almost winter (she is an embden) but my chickens have stopped laying for like three days now. Out of four hens I collected three eggs a day but now I am only getting one a day.... a small egg from my black Australorp (sp?) She has always laid small eggs..... anyhow My hens are VERY healthy and they are spoiled so I cannot figure out what is wrong. Has me a bit upset. Can someone give me some clues or information in why chickens stop laying?
