So, I have 8 chickens, but only get 3-5 eggs a day. I thought maybe eggs wee getting eaten, but have seen no evidence of that. Here's the only change, and it may be a big one....I have two ducks in with them. They tend to mess up the water, but it gets cleaned everyday. Could drinking "not so clean water" have anything to do with it? These same chickens used to give me 6 or 7 eggs a day.
