    I don't know what to do now. My hens have completly stopped laying!!! I know that it's cold but come on!!! We still gotta eat [​IMG] I have started giving them warm water, put more light in their coop, and even went and paid $5 for fake eggs to put in there!! Any suggestions?? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    we have 11 hens, that have been laying great - until last week - now we are down to about 3 eggs a day. I thought they were eating them, as I did see one eating a broken egg, but no wet nests or egg on their beaks since then. I really don't blame them as I'm tired of winter too!
