    sooo it is just turning spring here in melbourne and we are just coming out of a paticuarly cold winter. and the weather is changing quite alot as it does in spring.

    anyhows. my chickens have BOTH stopeed laying for the past four days. im not TOO alarmed as it is both of them and they are paticuarly happy and healthy and eating and all.

    are they just having a break? as they arnt even attempting to lay and egg and completely ignore the need to go. or should i maybe be worried?

    Thanks!!!

    What are you feeding them? How much fruit are they getting as treats?

    Chicken will take a break. Usually in cooler weather here.
    No worries.
