Anyone know what this might mean? My 7 hens are 7 and 1/2 years old. I had a couple eggs earlier in the year, but then they all stopped. I figured they were in "henopause". But then one of them started laying an egg about every 3 days, about 2 weeks ago. This is the same hen that I found on the floor, under the roost last week and she couldn't use her legs and she was very weak. I put her in a crate and started antibiotics, thinking she had a broken egg inside, but she had no symptoms of anything, except weak in the legs. After 3 days, she was normal, so she's back with the flock. I'm thinking she had a fall and a concussion. But I can't help thinking it had something to do with her late egg-laying..?? But.........is this normal, to stop laying eggs all summer, and then start back up in the late fall, when you're 7 and 1/2 years old??? Seems very curious to me.
