At the moment I have a breeding pen with 7 hens and one rooster. They have been in this area together for roughly 3 - 3.5 weeks. I have been getting 3 eggs a day, 4 if I'm lucky (of course since I am wanting to hatch eggs from them...). 3 of my hens are pushing 2.5 years so I ma a little more understanding of them but I know for a fact they are laying at least 4 a week each before they were in here because they were in a pen for 4 weeks just the 3 together. As for the other 4 I recently got them (about 2 months total now). For a month they were by themselves so I could make sure they were healthy. After they settled in they were each laying an egg a day. They have been with the other 3 hens and rooster for about a month now so I would have thought they would have settled into their new living area. There pen has lots of space, automatic waterer, a sheltered food dispenser, shade and a dry coop. They eat layer crumble, a little bit of scratch (not to much), and veggies/ grass every so often. No fruit as I know this stops/ messes with their laying cycle. There isn't much grass in their pen but it is growing back. They are all healthy and alert so that's why I'm here scratching my head as to why they aren't giving me more eggs! Any ideas??? Here are some pictures of their living arrangements.
