    Where are you located?

    Which feed are you giving them?

    Any new birds added?

    Any other changes?

    How long have you had them?

    It's the time of year for molting. The shorter days trigger it and they cannot lay eggs while they replace their feathers. Are you seeing a lot of feathers lying around?
