Can anyone tell me, please, what's going on here? I had a hen go broody about 7 weeks ago or so. Got her some fertile eggs to hatch, and now, presently, she is raising 3 little chicks within the flock. When she originally went broody, the egg production of the other 5 hens dropped off a lot.........(i.e.......before broody, I would get 4-6 eggs, out of 6 hens, per day. After broodiness set in.......egg production dropped off to, perhaps 2-3 eggs per day.) But since the chicks hatched........and they are 3 weeks old now......I'm lucky if I get one egg per day. And some of the girls have not laid an egg at all in weeks! Is this common after chicks are hatched, and are being raised by the mom in with the other girls???? Or is something else going on? Any ideas? Advice?
