I "inherited" 6 hens and a rooster when a family moved away and couldn't take their flock. They adjusted just fine and I was getting 4-5 eggs per day (1 hen is old and fat, and is just our Big Mama). Then I had 2 hens die over a couple of weeks due to some sort of attack--maybe neighbors dog. We live on 5 acres, so plenty of room to roam, no fences. I was still getting 3 eggs per day without fail. Then I brought in 2 younger hens, not egg laying age yet but old enough to hang with the others. Since then, I get 1 egg a day if I'm lucky. I thought maybe they were laying in the woods near our property, but I can't find any eggs at all. I check daily. They have plenty of water, and I've added more egg laying pellets to their diets. There is zero reason by anything I can find on Google as to why they aren't laying. The new girls have found their place in the pecking order, and everyone is happy. The girls still follow me around waiting for food or just company, but still no eggs. I keep the nesting boxes clean, use ceramic decoys to teach the new ones. I'm in Texas, so 2 months ago temps started to warm up, but have been pretty stable...not too hot, not too cold. All habits are routine, they get out of coops in the morning and put themselves to bed every night...then I close the coops and make sure they are accounted for. Can anyone tell me what's up? Thanks!
