I have a total of 19 pullets and hens 6 hatched spring 2012 and 13 hatched spring/summer 2013.My flock includes chicks and roosters as well so I have been feeding something they all can eat. Here is the thing, I have gone from getting 7-10 eggs a day, sometimes as many as 13 to getting 2-4 My CA Grey is still great and I have an Australorp/American Game/?? pullet who is laying regularly too. Everyone else has dropped off or stopped completely. I don't get it. They were laying on the shortest days. I was getting 7-10 eggs a day through December. Then starting in early Jan production dropped to 5 or 6 Yesterday we had 3, 4 the day before that and 2 the day before that I had switched feed at the end of Dec/First of Jan from Bar Ales Multi use poultry pellet which has GMOs to the BarAle GMO free turkey and gamebird grower crumble so now I am wondering if the drop in production is related to their feed. I had 13, 2013 girls who were laying in Dec. now only the two I already mentioned are consistant. The other 6 girls are 2012 and between molting and brooding I have only had between 2 or 3 of them laying throughout the fall and winter, so I guess the question is why are my younger girls taking a break NOW? Here is the nutrition information for the new feed: They have free choice oyster shell on the side and shell quality is good on the eggs that I collect. In addition they range nearly every day sometimes all day sometimes for just a few hours. Protein 22% I know this is high but my girls aren't fat. I feed the grower b/c I can't have a high calcium feed Lysine 1.3% Fat 4% Fibre 11% Ash 8% Calcuim 1.2 Phosphorus 0.6% Sodium max.4% Here is the link to the PDF for their former feed: http://www.baraleinc.com/products/poultry/product-info/update/20Multi-use poultry pellet.pdf The new feed has more Protein and Lysine, is the same for Fat and higher for fiber and Ash. Their droppings are overall nicer on this new feed Phosphorus and Sodium are both lower and the new feed has no Selenium. Am I being silly to even wonder why girls that laid through the shortest days would take their breaks as the days got longer? Or do you think I should switch back? Thanks in Advance!
