I've got four Khaki Campbell hens that were reliably laying an egg a day. Sometimes one would miss, but I would find one in the 'courtyard' later on in the day. I've got a lady that wants about ten days worth to hatch out, so I started keeping them separate. Of course, as soon as I started that, my ducks stopped laying! I started saving them on Wednesday, and that morning there were the usual 4 eggs. Next morning, there was 3, but I didn't think too much about it. Didn't see the usual one in the courtyard later that day. Yesterday, 3 eggs again, no fourth one anytime later. This morning, I was very disappointed to see NO eggs!!!! I did just find one a little bit ago in the courtyard. Does anyone have any idea why all of a sudden they have stopped laying eggs? Nothing has changed in their day to day life really. I've had to keep them locked up as the chickens are getting into the pig food, but they've been locked up before and I had no issue with eggs being laid. Any clues??? I can't believe that they waited until I had someone who wants to hatch them out! Any help or thoughts would be very much appreciated!
