    We have 3 hens. An Ameraucana, a RIR and a Red Sex-Link. The Ameraucana quit laying almost a month ago when her coop mate got egg bound and ended up dying. We got the other 2 as they were beginning to lay and have been getting a few small brown eggs. My question is why would the Ameraucana quit laying and is there a supplement we can feed them to improve egg production?

    The breed is not known for consistent laying, so expect them to start and stop throughout the season.
