    Three of my four hens stopped laying after a dog attack about 10 weeks ago. The three who are not laying didn't appear to suffer any physical injuries - strangely the one who was badly bitten by the dog, has recovered and is laying an egg each day. Is there anything I can do to encourage the others to lay again?

    Quote:I doubt after 10 weeks it was the attack. BTW- sorry that happened.
    Is it hot in Ireland? That can effect egg laying.

    Imp- Some people cayenne in their feed to increase laying. Don't know if it is true.
