    I recently moved into a house with six egg laying chickens and in the last few weeks they have stopped laying eggs. Is it because I am now feeding them loose feed instead of pellets like they were used to?? Thanks!!!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Is it layer feed? This time of the year chickens can molt, which slows egg laying. In addition with the days getting shorter many hens stop production for a while until the daylight starts increasing again.
