Sunday we found our first 3 eggs - 2 brown and one white, all small Monday the same thing, all in the same place. Tuesday we found the 2 brown eggs again in the same place and the white one in the pond. Wednesday only 1 brown egg Today nothing from any of them. We have 5 hens, 3 female ducks and I suspect two of the hens and one of the ducks is laying. I am very suprised at the size of their eggs as they are so small. My first question is - is it normal for them to all stop laying at the same time? Secondly, they refuse to lay in the nesting boxes, we have put false eggs in them but they wont even go in them..any ideas? Thirdly, what do you feed your birds? We feed a mixture of gamebird, egg mash and scratch.
