    I have 7 mixed breed hens that were laying fine in january and stopped in march. They are only 9 to 2 years old. I didnt change feed or anything i only got one hen that lays an egg every 2 days. I feed them laying pellets. Its good weather too sunny not cold or hot. I dont free range them they do have a big run with grass but i check in it for eggs everyday and nothing
    Please help
