I have 9 hens and 1 rooster. The rooster is a gamecock and the hens are just flea market chickens. I feed them scratch and laying pellets everyday along with oyster shells periodically. they get bread and they get to graze some during the day. The laid maybe 10 eggs all of 2015. They molted in the spring and have not laid any eggs since. I love having the chickens but if they dont start laying soon im going to be forced to sell and start over with a new batch. the summer before i was getting 6 to 8 eggs a day. None of the chickens are over 2 years old. i raised them all from chicks. Any suggestions of what i can do to get them going again??? Thanks in advanced!
