    My 9 pullets been laying everyday all winter so far .had three roosters in there with them until today gave two away:( I'm sure it'll mess up the pecking order . Headed to tractor supply for feed oyster shells and grit . Didn't know much about this when I started but I'm learning .

    If you just gave two of your roosters away that is most likely way she stopped laying she is probably a bit stressed that's all.

    Not sure you actually have a question but.....
    They'll probably be fine.....might even be calmer without all those boys in there, especially if you gave away the lower ranking boys.

    Sounds like you hit the jackpot for great layers - what breed(s) are they?
