    Where are all of my eggs at??? I got 1 egg from my serama hen that was her first. This was right at the beginning of winter, I also have an ameraucana hen that should be laying, but is not. I'm not sure if it's because it is winter? I need help...and eggs. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Do you have a light on in the coop?

    Have they been dewormed?

    Do they have lice or mites?

    What are you giving them for feed? Do they have fresh, clean water?

    How many hens/pullets do you have?

    When did they last molt?

    There are so many variables.

    Sometimes it's just cold and so they don't lay.

    I do have a light in the coop
    They have been dewormed
    they don't have lice or mites I have treated them more than once
    I feed them omega 3 pellets, layena pellets, scratch feed, and oyster shell. (I just switched feeds)
    I have 2 hens and 1 pullet and 3 cocks, and 1 cockeral
    They haven't moulted in a while
    They have a heater in the coop so it doesn't drtop below 60 degrees farhenheit.

    The serama hen layed 1 egg, and stopped. that's what bugs me...
