How do you know when a hen has stopped laying? I have 14 hens that are roughly 6yrs old. Last summer I averaged 9-10 eggs a day. I have heard that unusually dark yellow feet can mean a hen has slowed down. Anyone else heard that? I have 3 that fit that description including the red sexlink in the pic. One hen I have been concerned about has not molted yet. All the others are finished looking beautiful again except her. Does that mean her system is off too? I would like to hatch some chicks out this spring and adjust my flock. Any suggestions? Here is a sample pic of my flock. Most of them are like the white hen in the corner which are Autsralorp x leghorn cross.
