    Just resently ive notised that ive havnt gotten 3 eggs a day lately. I have a speckeled sussex, a production red and a black sex link. They hatched in september and started laying this winter. i feel that one of my chickens isnt laying right now. I know it has to be eather my black sex linked or my production red beacuse i'm still getting my cream colored egg from my sussex everday. I just cant think think of why the one of my girls is not laying latly and if i should try something to do. Any suggestions?

    Do you notice anything about her that makes her look "out of sorts"?....looking scraggly, not eating well, listlessness, etc. Is she molting? They tend to not lay much during a molt.
