Good afternoon friends!! I would like a little advice/problem solving help please! I have 6 layers, 2 sex link, 2 bard rocks and 2 americaunas - my americaunas are only about 9 months old and my 4 others are almost 3 - We also have a rooster who is 9 months old. My dilemma - In the fall I was getting very good egg production,5-6 a day - but a few months ago we noticed a huge decline - well, we found a nest under our deck that had a good 3 dozen eggs in it. We decided at that point we would keep the chickens in their yard so this would not happen again - production increased but not back to its baseline, we got 2-3 eggs a day, so we decided we would let them free range a few days a week. But the same problem occured, production really seemed to decline and we later found a nest under our wheel barrow. So now we have had them locken in their yard about 2 weeks and production is terrible, we are getting one egg a day at best, sometimes none, and we havent had a green egg in 2+ weeks - Any ideas why this is happening? Could there be something wrong with the coop that thier not wanting to lay in their boxes? I would welcome any and all thoughts.
