    In August one of my New Hampshire Reds started to lay eggs…I was getting one a day for about two weeks! However, how I am lucky to get 1 every three or four days!! I can’t figure out what is going wrong…she has plenty of water, food, and access to crushed oyster shells! (Same as other chickens)

    She has a healthy appetite and is not being picked on by others…she just won’t lay any eggs consistently. Any suggestions?

    She may be molting.
