    Thanks everyone for the welcome. I have a small flock. Been raising them for about 8 years. Every year is different. This year has been the worst. Last year i got a few guinea because I get rat snakes. Things were fine last year but this year the males kept attacking my chickens. They were all raised together so I did not think much of it. late spring the guinea decided to roost in the trees, great no problem until the owl figured out where they were. The last three went back to the coop. Next all my hens quit laying. After a couple of months of this I got rid of the two males. The female does fine with the flock. 3 weeks later and still no eggs. I even bought 4 young hens that were suppose to be laying soon. Still no eggs. I don't know what else to do. Help!!!
