I havent gotten one egg in like 2 months or more. I dont know what the deal is. Any suggestions. The phoenix are molting but none of the other ones seem to be. I should not have to go buy eggs all the time. I have a freakin chicken farm.

If they are moulting, egg laying usually slacks off considerably. They may even stop laying for awhile while they moult. If they had just started to lay sometimes they will lay an egg or two and then stop for awhile.

I switched from Nutrena crumbles to the pellets and my girls didn't seem very happy. They didn't eat well and slowed down considerably on their laying, so I switched back and they went back to happy and laying well again. Luckily I bought a small bag. I smashed up the remaining pellets and mixed it with their crumbles. It may just have been the switch.
