I know this question has been asked so many times but I've tried all solutions and can't figure them out. I average around 10-12 eggs per day and in the dead of winter around 4-5. In the last couple weeks it's been reduced to 1 if we're lucky. Yes, we've had some gloomy weather in MN but nothing they haven't seen. I know they've been eating some eggs because I've seen egg on their faces. Not a joke even though it sounds like one. I have: 3 SLW 3 RR 4 BO 1 BR 1 Mutt? 2 Polish Crested I just added the BR and Mutt. I say Mutt because for the life of me I can't figure out what it is. It looks like a Maran. It was free so I can't refuse FREE. I had changed their diet over the summer because the feedstore was always closed when I had time to stop. Bad Excuse! I was buying what I now refer to as crap. However, TSC now carries the Layena pellets which they really love. I switched back to the Layena. I even added some Oyster shell to their feed and scratch grains because I noticed the shells were sort of thin. Now the 1 egg we usually get has a hard shell but still no increase in production. I just cleaned out their whole coop and added fresh litter. My garden (fenced on 3 sides) sits right next to their run so I added a little gate on their run to give them access to the garden. (Should have done this long ago) I put up a temporary fence on the 4th side of the garden. So now their run is approx. 80 x 30. This I hoped would cheer them up if they were depressed. I noticed they have been doing a lot of pecking on each other. So I think my coop is too small. It's 8 x 5. So what I decided to do is donate my 3 SLW and 3 RRs to a family who is down on their luck. They want to start a flock but don't know how it all works and don't have internet to research things. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
