I have 3 hens but only get 1 egg a week if Im lucky. the 2 banties I got last fall. and the EE I got a month ago. Ive only gotten 1 egg from the ee and it wasnt in the nestbox. She is 2 yrs old and was laying every other day for the previous owners. The banties are 2 and one from 2008. I did find some a couple half eaten eggs in Feb. But havent seen any signs since ( no shells or dirty faces) They are in a 4x6 ft cage. Ive had lights on since the end of Jan (usually (4) 40 watt flourescents about 10 t0 12 feet from there cage) but no heat. They also free range when its nice out but they dont wonder far so I check everywhere theyve been in case they happened to lay outside. I throw egg shells in my garden for compost and they never try to eat those. They get layer feed, oats, oyster shells, and hay along with what ever I have in the kitchen. I dewormed them all a month ago. I also put a ball in the nestbox and have debeaked them when I found the eaten eggs but I dont know if I took enough off or not. Is this a seasonal thing or what. Im really hungry for fresh eggs! Im even dreaming of finding eggs in the nestbox!!
