    [​IMG]I recently, well 4 months ago started letting my hens free range. I have seen no signs of rodents but there are no eggs. Only 1-4 per week for 5 hens?? I can't find a hidden nest. How can I get them to lay in the coop again. I've tried keeping them in for a few days and got a few eggs. HELP!! Missing my eggs!!!

    Best thing you can do - lock them up in the coop for a little longer, until the eggs start appearing.
