You discovered the problem. A diet of corn for chickens is like a person eating only bread.No looked everywhere no sign of eggs. They hav only been eating mixed corn so that may be a reason they are back on layers pellets now thanks

A neighbor wanted to buy some hens from me. When I asked why, he said his stopped laying. I asked what he was feeding them. He said, "corn".
I said, "Yeah, but what else?" He said, "Just corn." I said, "You're starving them. They need chicken feed that has all the nutrients chickens need not just a few."
