Hi there - So my 30-week-old EE pullet, Golden, has been laying almost an egg a day for the past month at least. About a week I ago I began integrating 5 new EEs (after appropriate quarantine period of 30 days) into the existing flock. Since that time, Golden has only laid one egg. (Or, more accurately, she has only laid one egg that I found.) The flock that the 5 newbies are being added to has 3 BOs, 3 RIRs and Golden, the EE. Golden was near the top of that pecking order - I think #2. So, what do you think is going on? Do pullets stop laying if something in their environment is in transition, like adding more girls? I don't think she's laying in some secret spot that I can't find because her sisters are still laying in the nest boxes. Any thoughts? Could adding more birds cause her to slow down for a bit? Thanks a lot for your help.
