We went away to Key West(and its chickens) Upon our return I found 6 hens missing. We had someone caring for them, but our dogs were gone, so I imagine something in the woods or in the air noticed the lack of protection and went to town. Now with the absence I have a non laying flock. Could it be a shock thing...mourning....? They were doing great I had a mixed bag with 16 hens and 3 roosters...getting about 7 eggs per day. Now I haev 10 hens and 3 roosterws and 0 eggs per day. We also had a shot of cold nights. Very puzzled Does anyone know what may happen next?
