So last week my one hen decided to go broody. I've been trying to break her but it's not working, so...whatever. Obviously, she's not laying. But....my egg production suddenly went down. I was getting 8-9 eggs a day from 10 hens. Now it's down to 5. No clue why, nothing has changed except for the one hen going broody. Seems like as soon as that happened, I'm getting less eggs than I should if you just subtract the one hen. These are all young hens, all just over a year, breeder birds who matured very slowly. There's no way they should be slowing down at all. Does anyone have any ideas?? I've walked my entire property and don't see any eggs anywhere. They have always laid in the nest boxes. I'm thinking of locking them all in the coop/run tomorrow and see what egg production looks like at the end of the day. I'm getting really frustrated by everything. Not enjoying chicken-keeping very much anymore.
