I have a small flock of varying breeds (see my sig below...). Well, egg laying started slowing down in September. My hubby and I got married Sept. 19th, and went on a week long honeymoon, during which our friends dog, cat, and chicken-sat for us. When we got home, they said they didn't get one egg all week. Now it's almost December and I've been eggless since then! What did I do? I thought at first it was molting. My RIR and my BO were definatly molting there for a while. But they've had all their feathers for about a month. And they were great layers, at least one egg per day. Same deal with my Wyandotte/EE crosses. My WL's will be a year old in January, so I don't think they would be molting yet? They eat good laying mash, I don't give a lot of treats anymore. Oh, and I even tried putting ping pong balls in the laying boxes! Did they just not want their mommy and daddy to get married? LOL I just had to buy two dozen eggs for deviled eggs tomorrow! I shouldn't have to buy eggs!!!
