    I have 5 hens (2 wyandotte cross austrolorp and 3 Isa Browns (production reds)

    My girls free range 3 hours in the afternoon and have shell grit and high quality layer pellets available.

    If I am providing everything I can, could this just be an old age thing ? I was getting 4 eggs a day.

    Then last week it dropped to 3 a. day NOW 8days later I have 4 and one is soft.

    I have read the other threads but Any Ideas?

    They'll throw one of those every now and again.

    Thanks !

    I have never had one in years of looking after chickens. I was concerned because I have done everything for them..
