This is my first winter as like a full-time chicken owner, but I was expecting my chickens to stop laying eggs during the colder months. Just a few months ago I became a vegetarian because I don't like how battery hens are treated, and the only eggs I allowed myself to eat were from my own hens. Just last week, all of my eleven birds stopped laying! I need a source of protien because, as most of you know, meat contains the most and without eating meat you get hardly any at all. I would really like to somehow get my birds laying again, even if just one hen would lay just one egg a day that would be great! I don't know if there is any sort of feed you can give them, or if you keep the house warm if they will lay, but I'm hoping there's something out there. When I don't get any eggs I have to drink this soy protien drink (Can anybody say GROSS!!!) so I'm praying somebody knows something!
