    How can I increase my hens egg production? Had to coop them up do to a predictor.:rolleyes:
     
  2. First welcome to BYC from Wisconsin. Just a few questions... How much has your egg production dropped. How many hens vs how many eggs per day. When you locked up the hens because of a "predator".. is this when production went down?

    The egg production dropped for 10 hens from 8-10 a day to 1-6 or 7 per day. I cont to give them scratch grains and greens etc. daily.

    [​IMG] They still may be highly stressed as survivors of a predator attack. When they feel secure again, they should resume their laying pattern.
