I had 6 hens who were laying, on average, 4-5 eggs a day. Then a raccoon managed to get in and slaughtered 3 of them. Obviously, they were traumatized. I went and bought 3 more hens, and since they are all relatively docile breeds (dominique, Americana, RI red, and orpingtons) they seem to get along very well. But there have been NO eggs at all since mid September. The new ones each laid ONE egg, then stopped. They are young (I was told they had just started laying, around 20 weeks old), and my original ones are laying age. But it has been MONTHS now and...nothing! I used to get eggs through the winter months, just not as often, so I know it's not the season. And I am checking daily for anything that could steal eggs...my beagle is a great watchdog for snakes and raccoons (just wish she had been outside when the stupid coon attacked before!) And I have tried keeping them in the coop all day just to see if maybe they are laying and I'm not finding the hiding place...nope. I have checked the entire back yard just in case they're hiding them...nope. I can see if the original three were so traumatized it affected their laying...but not the new ones! Any idea? I have even kept watch to see if they could be eating them, but I see no evidence of that. Am I missing something?! Help!!
