Hi...I'm new to this forum. I need some answers...if anyone has any. I have 40 golden comets who started laying in April...any where from 35 to 40 eggs each day. They were medium to dark brown eggs. Then, about a week ago they started laying lighter colored eggs...almost light brown. Then, in the last two days they practically stopped laying. I got 15 eggs yesterday and only 13 today. Anyone know why the color has changed and why they've stopped laying? I also have 18 Americanas (blue and green egg layers). They too have all but stopped laying. Can anyone advise me? I wonder if I've over fed them with bread? I've been giving them about four loaves of bread each day...lately I've increased that to 8 loaves. Is that possibly the problem? I've considered the lighting issue...but I have lights on a timer to give them 16 hours of light each day...any help?
