No one has laid an egg since October 22nd I have 12 standard size hens that were one year old june 2011. They all started laying between sept of last year and Jan of this Year. Some were molting but some had already molted and started laying again so molting isnt the reason They have artificial light so shorter days are not the problem none of them appear sick. no runny nose, no sneezing. poops look normal I also have 2 Standard EEs that I raised from chicks this spring that started laying the end of August They have not molted but stopped laying eggs the same time as all the others. Starting the begining of October I let them free range 2 or 3 afternoons a week for an hour or so each day. I had flower beds of Marigolds and Impatients that they picked though among other things. Is it possible they all ate something that affected the egg laying process? Anyone have any Ideas? Just seems odd thay all stopped laying at the same time, Even the ones that I just raised this spring. Does anyone else have 10 or more laying hens that are healthy and have artificial light to compensate for the shorter day and getting 0 eggs?
