I noticed a mention of this in a somewhat non-related thread. Two people mentioned that feeding apples to chickens will keep them from laying eggs. Is this true? Just last week I saw a different thread that mentioned how much chickens enjoy eating apples so I've been cutting them up for my girls. Now I read that it can take as long as a month after eating apples for chickens to lay again. Mine are just 16 weeks old and not laying yet anyway, but I'm certainly not interested in postponing things - very keen on getting eggs! Anyone with info on this subject?
