Hi there, I have six chickens I bought last year as pullets and they have been great they have laid everyday since i got them. I then introduced another ten chickens fairly easily and the first day they laid 14 out of 16 chickens. everyday since then I have had severly lower numbers, some days ill get eight and then some days ill get three. My originaly six chickens began to lose their feathers a few months ago before I got the new chickens, they continued to lay, they are just now getting some of their new feathers. For the last week I have gotten not one egg, what would be the reason for this?? Perhaps they are all molting? The new 10 look pretty good, I was hoping they had already gone through their molt before I got them, but I think they may be just starting to molt now? I have been putting apple cider vinigear in the water but doesn't seem to be helping. One other probelm, back when they were laying a friend who ate some mentioned that she got a few eggs in the dozen that looked "murky" no deffined yolk, she didn't eat them. Could this be a sick chicken? Or perhaps to much fruit? (I feed them all the scraps, right now pears are in season and they have been getting lots!) I also just recently changed their feed from 16 to 18 percent protein, could this be affecting egg production? Any ideas? Thanks!
