    I hatched 100 jumbo brown eggs and at 6 weeks of age I sold all but 13 for a breeding stock. I moved these to a breeding pen and the first 3 days I got 9 eggs and have gotten no more. It has been 10 days since the last egg. Any Ideas on what has happened?

    moving birds can make them slow down or even stop for up to 2 weeks sometimes a whole month. Or they could be starting a moult?
