Hi Everyone, I have 8 chickens, 5 are rirs who haven't started laying yet (& 2 are roosters anyway) but the other 3 are older chickens who have been laying for a while (1 bo, 1 wyandotte, and 1 cochin). However, a few months ago all 3 went broody and stopped laying. I got them to stop sitting & they all started laying again for a couple of weeks but now I hardly get any eggs. Between the 3 of them I get maybe 3 eggs a week if I am lucky. What is going on? The weather is beautiful here and I have started locking them all in their pen all the time because I thought they might be laying on the property somewhere while they were out but nothing has changed. They all seem healthy and none are moulting or anything. There are squirrels that get into the pen but would they steal the eggs? Any suggestions? I am sick of buying eggs at the store when I have 8 chickens in my yard that I am feeding every day! I haven't changed their feed that they have been on their entire lives but they do get treats from me and my neighbor's kids buy mealworms to feed them sometimes. Is it possible for them to get too much protien?
