I have 8 hens, 3 Buff Orpingtons, 12mnts old. 2 Isa Browns, 2 1/2 years old. 1 Australorp, 3 year old, & 2 mixed cross 6 - 8 mnths old. in the last week I have recieved I egg.. 1 Rooster. they do share with ducks but they are happy and their is plenty of room. I am almost over it and have little paitence left. As far as I know all I can do I have, * layer pallets * Free range every day ( searched everywhere no hidden spots where they are laying ) * Clean water and coop. * good hutches ( mower catchers complete with golf balls.) * clean water. * Summer here so at least 15hrs daylight a day. * no disturbances * no predators birds, rats ect.. * they are not eating their own eggs. Please help, I don't understand I should be getting at least 35 - 40 eggs a week. also for some strange reason the 4 Ducks are not laying either?? could this be related... Mabye I am just not meant to be poultry raiser. I am in Australia.
