So this may be a silly question but here it goes anyways! I've had to seperate my rooster from his girls, he had a swollen/scabby vent that they were picking at, which is healing up nicely, but I have noticed since that day, the egg production has slowed down... for example, I was getting 18 or 19 eggs a day, and since that day it has been gradually going down...today I only got 12 eggs! Could this have anything to do with the separation? or is it just a coincidence? Both parties(hens and rooster) are 'lost' without each other, and are not acting like themselves. Thank you for reading and I hope to figure this out!
