    Hey guys...i have added 4 new girls to the flock....and I one had 1....she is still dropping one every day....have not gotten ANY other eggs since then from the new girls......

    they are "of age" and should be laying....do I call the guy I got them from and swap out for new ones???

    What breeds are they? They should be younger than 3 or 4 years is you still want eggs. However, there are lots of things that could make them stop laying. Have they just moved in? It could be stress, a disease, mites, lice, and many other things. Do they appear to be sick?
