Help!I have a flock of 20 hens and 1 rooster.(I also have 3 chicks.) Well, even though this time of year is when most chickens are laying lots of eggs, mine are barely laying anything! We get from 9 to 13 eggs a day even though I have 20 full grown hens. They get free ranging one or two times a day, I give them fresh water every day, and make sure they have plenty of feed. They just had red mites but I think we took care of them. Would red mites cause them not to lay eggs? We also feed them lots of blueberries. Blueberries are like their favorite treat. We also give them strawberries and tomatoes. Is it something they are eating? i will take any suggestions!
