I'm new to the forum, and new to any kind of issues with chickens, although I've had them for almost two years now. So, I'd appreciate any help the community can give me! The background: I got my first chickens about 18 months ago, 5 Ameraucanas, 8 Buff-Orpingtons, 8 Rhode Island Reds, 10 Cornish Cross and two Turkeys. Over the course of these past 18 months, I lost one turkey to stress, dressed one out at 25#, taught the Cornish Cross to roost in the freezer, added four Barred Rocks and three turkeys this spring, lost 2 each of the Rhodes and Buffs to my Black Lab, sold some here and there, and up until this summer, had no major disease or other problems impact the egg production. I was even surprised with a rooster in my "straight run" of chicks! Then the problems came... I had one of the Rhodes go broody on me while I was on vacation. Not a problem, I was getting enough eggs that it didn't matter that one was taking a break. Several weeks later, to my delight, out hatch 10 cute chicks! They were growing and doing great, until about three weeks after they hatched. I checked on the coop, as I usually do at night, and found two dead, one missing and the mother hen in a, how do I put this, bad mood? My coop looked like a small dog had gotten in and dug up the dirt floor and sent all my other hens to the rafters. Over the next few days, I slowly lost chicks. I couldn't figure it out! Until, I came face to face with the skunk. It was too late though, as all my chicks were now gone. I called animal control, they said to take care of the skunk myself. So I did. Then, immediately after that, my chickens got, what I believe to be Foul Pox (thanks to a lot of posts about it by others on this forum). Even the three turkeys got it! Through this, my egg production dropped, but still I'd get a few eggs a day. Now that my flock is all healed up from the foul pox, I'm adding food to the feeder one night, and I see that the two toms are grabbing any chickens that bet between them and the food and ringing them like rag dolls, before tossing them aside! Who knew that turkeys could be so mean? Not me! So now I've separated the chickens from the turkeys, and I've not had an egg in a few days. Having read about what causes drops in egg production, I'm fairly sure that I've had two or three (Changes in routine, stress, predation, etc). My question: After all of this, when should I see production start back up? How long do I wait before my flock starts their roosting period in the freezer? I hate feeding them and getting nothing in return (besides the enjoyment of raising them). They have plenty of coop space (a 14x14 coop) and an 1/8th of an acre free from predators. Thanks for reading all of this, and helping me out!
