I'm new to the world of chickens and not very educated about them. My problem is no eggs. I brought 5 chickens home from the feed store right after Easter. Supposedly, they were all hens. 3 turned out to be roosters. I started getting eggs from 1 of the hens about 2 months ago. She layed about 5 eggs, then I gave the roosters away. Now, no more eggs. At first, I thought they may be hiding them, because I was letting them free range it in the yard, but I searched everywhere. I have been keeping them confined in the coop, but still no eggs. Do you think they are just sad because the boys left? Everyone says its a myth that you need a rooster to get eggs. I know it is too, but what is going on??? Also, its been really, really, really hot in souther california the last month or so. Do you think the 90-100 degree weather could be affecting them? Thanks for any advise you can give. I'm thinking about getting some more hens, and since finding this website, now I know to keep them seperate for a few weeks. You guys are a fountian of information, and I will keep coming back for as long as I have chickens.
