Howdy! Having a bit of an egg problem over here, that has a couple of layers to it. I have eight hens, and at the turn of the year (December - February), I was getting three dozen eggs a week. Since, egg laying has dropped dramatically (odd, since the summer has started and the sun more prevalent). Second issue, I know I have a chicken eating eggs. I don't see enough shell for the little lady to consume THAT many eggs a day, so the rest aren't laying much. I should also add that this group is in their first full year (year and a half, actually) and should be at peak laying. They are in a huge run on the side of my house (easily over 25 feet long and over 10 feet wide). So, my questions: any idea why my girls aren't laying consistently anymore? Any clue how to rid the egg eater? Thanks!
