My two hens are just over a year old. Last year they each laid about 6 eggs per week. Then of course it fell off to more like 4-5 in the winter. The weird thing is it is still slow. I am only getting 2 eggs a day one out of three days (the other two days I'll get one usually). I am worried that there is something wrong. I assuming they are not hiding them (they are free range) since there are occasionally two eggs in a day. One hen has scratched a bare patch on the side of her neck about 1 inch square. It seems to be slowly getting bigger. I didn't think much of it when I noticed it a month or so ago, but could this be a symptom of a problem? If so what do I do???? Are there any other reasons their egg laying would be slow or other reasons you can think of as to why I am getting so few eggs? My hens seems happy and healthy, they are BR's. One more thing, I did get three new chickens (only 3 months old) that I recently started to let free range also. Could they be upsetting the hens?
