    I have eight hens, and for most of the last week I've been getting 6 or 7 eggs per day. On Mother's Day, not a single egg. Did they know it was Mother's Day, or perhaps it being Sunday, decided it was a day of rest?

    That's weird I wonder if something scared them or did you change something.

    Someone else offline suggested the same thing; that perhaps something scared them, but I don't think so. There are dogs in the neighborhood, but that's nothing new. We moved the chicken tractor a few feet, but that too is nothing new to them.
