    I have two EE that lay beautiful green eggs. However, it has been about 5 weeks since either of them have laid an egg. We had a recent dog incident about a month ago, so my chickens are no longer allowed to free range until we get some sort of electric fencing up to protect them. My production reds and leghorn are laying pretty much every day, but I haven't seen green eggs in a long long time. They act healthy, have full glossy feathers and are not under weight. My chickens get organic layer mash mixed with vegetable juice, flax seed, calf manna, meal worms, and a 7 grain scratch mix to provide variety while they are in chicken jail. Any ideas? My hens are abou 11 months old.

    It just sounds like they are on a break. EE's aren't the most reliable layers in winter.
