    Ive got six chickens all in thier first year, and until two weeks ago all of them were laying quite regularly. Then all of a sudden our Araucana fell off the egg wagon. She appears healthy in every way - eating, pecking, squaking, poopin... you know all the normal chicken things, but no more beautiful blue green eggs. I was thinking that maybe the changing of the seasons was effecting her, but everyone else is still going strong. Do chickens just take breaks?

    Variety is truly the spice of life! [​IMG]
