We have noticed a drop in eggs since we had to get rid of 2 of 4 roosters. We have 10 hens and we thought they would be elated - they are no longer getting gang banged ?? One was the Alpha rooster which they liked but I didn't care for because he attacked me every chance he got. I feel relieved and guilty at the same time. Would that cause a drop in egg laying? Went from 8 to 5 eggs a day in about 4 days. Made sure they aren't laying anywhere in the yard.
