    I have 5 hens and I have only been getting 1 egg every other day. I have read some posts saying the same thing. I have a polish hen that has completly stopped laying. She hasn't laid an egg in 2 months. I give them egg layer crumbles along with scraps. What could be causing this?

    My polish never started laying...but then again they may even be roosters! Ah well, I feed and water the dogs and cats and they don't give me eggs either.
